You can form a team or join one in your county. Teams include 3-5 youth in grades 6-12. Each spring, teams present their solutions at a practice regional event to prepare for the state competition in early summer. Each member of the top three teams will receive a scholarship ranging from $400 to $1,000 to use at the university, college or trade school of their choice.
