Siemens Competition extends deadline in light of natural disasters

by Katherine Zhang, STEM Editor

The Siemens Competition announced this morning that it would be extending its deadline to Sept. 25, six days after the original deadline, in order to accommodate for students in areas affected by recent natural disasters.

“We wish to remain sensitive to all students, families and communities affected by recent extreme weather conditons,” the Siemens Foundation said in a statement released to students participating in the competition.

The Siemens Competition is a science research competition that offers high school students the opportunity conduct independent research and report their findings. Students write and submit formal research papers up to 18 pages in length, which are then judged by practicing scientists.

Semifinalists and regional finalists for the competition will be announced on Oct. 17 and 18, respectively.
