About DVSC Exams

exam1High school seniors interested in science are invited to participate in the Delaware Valley Science Council Annual Regional Science Competition.

Every year the DVSC sponsors a regional science competition for high school seniors leading to achievement awards that include cash grants and recognition at the DVSC Annual Awards Recognition Dinner in the spring.

Each fall the DVSC contacts Delaware Valley high school science department chairpersons and coordinators who are invited to nominate up to four senior students to participate in the annual program. Students complete two examinations selected from among mathematics, biology, chemistry or physics.

Based upon the examination results, finalists are invited to attend personal interviews in January. The combined results of the examinations and personal interviews leads to the selection of award recipients. All finalists are recognized at the annual dinner.
