The sanofi-aventis International BioGENEius Challenge is an annual
competition for high school students that recognizes outstanding biotechnology
research.
Who can apply?
Students enrolled in biology or any other high school science course (Grades 9 to
12) in any public or private school within the United States.
To enter the sanofi-aventis International BioGENEius Challenge, follow this path:
1. First, submit your application package (including your research project description) to the Biotechnology
Institute by February 28, 2007. Submissions must be postmarked on or before February 28, 2007. A panel
of judges will review the research project descriptions and select two finalists from each state. These two
finalists will advance to the sanofi-aventis Regional BioGENEius Challenge. All students submitting a project
will receive a Certificate of Participation, which they can cite on their resume.
2. If you are selected as a state finalist, you will receive a $100 cash award. We will then invite you to compete
in a spring 2007 sanofi-aventis Regional BioGENEius Challenge event. At the Regional Challenge, finalists
will present their projects to a panel of judges who will select two finalists from each region. These two
finalists will advance to the sanofi-aventis International BioGENEius Challenge.
3. If you are selected as one of the two regional finalists, you will receive an all-expense paid trip to compete
at the sanofi-aventis International BioGENEius Challenge in Boston, MA (May 5-7, 2007).
