The 2020 Neurological Surgery, P.C.
Health Science Competition Will Be A Virtual Fair
Please read below for details on how the Competition will proceed in a virtual format. Submissions MUST be received by May 27th, 2020 at 4pm EST. Instructions on how to exactly create and submit your Google Site links can be found here. Results will be announced on Monday, June 15!
- Teams will create a Google Site and upload everything required onto it via Google Drive
- This is fairly straightforward to do and Teams will be provided with detailed instructions
- You will need a free Google account to do this. School Google accounts may have content sharing restrictions on them, so you will need to create a new one if that is the only Google account you have.
- Depending on your knowledge of Google’s online platform, it will take between 30 minutes to 2 hours to create the site, though a majority will easily finish under an hour
- Image of the poster board/digital poster board OR a PowerPoint/Google Slides of 20 slides at most
- Teams may submit up to 2 images of your poster board i.e. top half and bottom half
- If you already possess a poster board and can print your information, then you can certainly use this traditional method. However, as acquiring one may be difficult at this time, Teams are more than welcome to create a PowerPoint/Google Slides presentation to upload instead.
- A video of a maximum length of 10 minutes explaining your work in which you must be seen
- You are not required to be seen the entire time, but you must show face so we know it is you that is speaking.
- If there are multiple members on a team, unless social distancing rules are relaxed in time, teams should video chat with each other for their presentation. Skype allows you to record and then download the video file, but if Teams wish to use another application or method they are more than welcome to do so
- All applicable forms
- Some changes have been made to the forms and submission procedures. Please check here for more information.
- Sites will be submitted by sending them to the Sponsor first, who will then pass them on to the Administrator.
- The challenge is simple: experiment and test any innovation in health science. It does not matter the level or the field, so long as it fits under the health science umbrella, entering as a competitor is allowed and encouraged.
- How to compete
- Any high school student that fits the geographic criteria is allowed to enter. Registration begins October 16th, 2019 at 12:00:00 PM EST at www.cstl.org/nspc, and teams must register by May 14th, 2020 at 12:00:00 PM EST. Late registration will not be allowed under almost any circumstances, and only then at the sole discretion of the administrator of the competition.
- There will be a $25 dollar non-refundable registration fee per team that may be paid at the time of registration, or mailed in via check, money order, or purchase order. Schools may pay for all Teams once they have signed up by requesting an invoice from the administrator.
- Teams must then fill out the proper forms that are detailed in the rules, and found under the Rules & Forms tab.
- Students will compete for $80,000 in score based awards. The exact breakdown of prizes can be found at www.cstl.org/nspc/hsc-prizes/
