This year the Biotechnology Institute is excited about the 2012 U.S. National BioGENEius Challenge, the premier competition for high school students that recognizes outstanding research in biotechnology.
Students in your state may qualify for the U.S. National BioGENEius Challenge, by applying directly to the At-Large Challenge through the online application process located on the Biotechnology Institute website(www.biotechinstitue.org). The Institute will host a virtual competition in which a panel of judges will convene and review each completed research project submission from students across the U.S. Judges will then select 15 student delegates. The selected 15 students will receive a travel award for a student/teacher pair paid trip to Boston, MA from June 16 - 19, 2012. The selected 15 students will also join the winners of each Local BioGENEius Challenge(s) to present their research poster and oral presentations and advance to the U.S. National BioGENEius Challenge. 10 winners of the U.S. National BioGENEius Challenge will be advance to the International BioGENEius Challenge held in conjunction with an international biotech industry conference hosted by the Biotechnology Industry Organization.
