The What If Prize Competition is designed to spark interest in space science with the goal of encouraging students to use their imagination for innovative ideas. Each year the competition presents unique space-theme challenges and gives students the opportunity to think, search and write their ideas on how to solve these challenges. There is one competition for middle school students and another for high school students.
Teams must register by February 28, 2013, and competition entries must be submitted by March 31, 2013. Winners will be announced in early May.
