Three of the last five winners have been Science Olympiad team members — 2016: Maanasa Mendu from Mason, Ohio; 2015: Hannah Herbst from Boca Raton, Florida; and 2013: Peyton Robertson from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida — and each year since 2013, four of the Top 10 came from Science Olympiad schools!

The grand prize is $25,000, with all Top 10 winners receiving $1,000, a trip to the 3M HQ, the chance to work with a 3M scientist mentor, and other cool benefits like a special prize pack for any Science Olympiad finalist! This year’s suggested Thought Starters for video submissions are Manufacturing, Energy, Safety, Healthcare and Transportation — topics aligned to all 23 of the current Division B Science Olympiad events.
