For Nominees

Congratulations on your nomination! You are part of a select group of students invited to apply to the Broadcom MASTERS national competition.

The application for the 2019 Broadcom MASTERS is now CLOSED. Top 300 MASTERS will be announced on September 4th, 2019, and the top 30 finalists will be announced on September 18th, 2019.

Nominees are chosen among the top 10% of the 6th, 7th and 8th grade competitors at a Society-affiliated science and engineering fair in the United States, and now join a network of distinguished alumni. Great work! 

Broadcom MASTERS nominees receive a packet of materials at their fair, which includes instructions and entry rules. The next stop in the process is to complete the online application

The online application asks questions about your science or engineering fair project and your understanding of science and engineering in everyday life. Students must complete and submit their online application and parental/guardian permission form by the June 12, 2019 deadline to officially enter the national competition.

Entries are judged during the summer and 300 top projects will be announced on September 4, 2019. From these Top 300 MASTERS, 30 finalists and one parent/guardian will win an all-expense-paid trip to the national finals in Washington, DC to showcase their projects, compete in teams and visit sites that celebrate innovation through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

To understand the nomination process, please see the FAQ.
