Google presents its online science competition, open to students between the ages of 13 and 18 from around the world. The Scientific American Science in Action Award, sponsored by Scientific American, honors a project that makes a practical difference by addressing an environmental, health or resources challenge.

A new award for this year, the Google Science Fair Computer Science Award celebrates a project which has the potential to make a difference through outstanding and innovative work in the field of computer science.

The Local Award will celebrate projects that receive a mark of excellence during preliminary judging and that attempt to address a locally relevant issue. The winners will be awarded a prize valued at $1,000 by Google, to help further their project and education. To be eligible for the local award, entrants must live in a participating location as outlined in the competition rules.

The Local Award title has no bearing on an entrant’s progress through the rest of the competition and the winners of the Local Award will be determined by a separate judging panel. The Local Award judging panels will select a winner from amongst eligible entries within each participating country or US State.
