What is Student Competitions.com?

StudentCompetitions.com was founded in 2009 by students who wanted to save time searching the globe for student challenges.  The website is a gathering point for events and challenges targeting students and young professionals. It is the only platform where students, regardless of field and level of studies, can find major competitions all in one place.  These competitions are broken down into five main categories:  Business, Arts & Design, Social Sciences, Tech & Engineering and Natural Sciences & Math.

Competitions are ways to get involved in your field of interest and to compete with other students to gain awards, scholarships and exposure to employers. Competitions can be used to drive change, spur innovation, identify excellence or promote a cause – globally and locally.
Participating in competitions gives you the edge:
·      Provides recruitment opportunities by getting your name and skills in front of employers
·      Challenge yourself to apply your education to real-world problems
·      And, prizes, of course!
