2012 winners of the Google Science Fair. Source
I wish that I had heard about this sooner. Google has just announced the beginning of their 2013 science fair. Young people from the ages of 13 to 18 all over the world will be competing against each other for a chance to win one of several prizes, and their weapon of choice will be their brains. These students will upload their science projects for judging, and the ones with the best ideas will make it into semifinals and finally into finals where they will actually present in person. I am 18, so this will be my last year to compete, and I think I'm going to give it a try. I don't expect to win, but I want to have the experience. If only I'd known that this existed years ago.
