Academic Competitions

Academic competitions provide a fun incentive for students to deepen their knowledge in STEM fields and put their new skills to the test. UVM partners with nation-wide programs like MathCounts, where teams of middle school students compete in events at the local, state and national level. We also take a leading role in organizing local competitions, such as the Vermont FIRST Technical Challenge, an engineering and design competition hosted by the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences.
