Middle School Science Fair Projects Competitions: Youth Awards Program

NEED Youth Award Program Winners

This week we are going to be looking at the National Energy Education Development Project Youth Awards Program. While this is not a science competition, per se, it is a way for schools to recognize outstanding students for their science achievements. The focus of this program is classroom science exploration. It is designed to encourage schools and students to explore energy science in the classroom and then apply the lessons learned to the community.

Although the Youth Awards Program’s deadline has past, you can begin to prepare for the next school year. Click on the above link to learn more about applying.




There is a registration fee that is going to cover most of the student’s expenses during their trip to the Youth Awards Program. It will cover their lodging, their local transportation, their meals, and their tour of Washington, D.C. This is a great program that helps to recognize superior science students, to reinforce the value of developing science skills and a great chance for kids across the country to network with one another. Participation in this program also looks great on college entrance applications.

Science is an important subject to do well in. If you want to get into a great college or technology school development program, then you can develop your skills by working with STEM/STEAM projects.
