Premier Competition

What is it?

Every November, hundreds of high school-level students around the world showcase their skills by competing in an individual-based physics competition hosted internationally. This event bears the name Physics Unlimited Premier Competition.

The 2019 Premier Competition will take place on Sunday, November 17, 2019. Please check relevant preparation details and access the registration link on that page.

General overview

We invite high school students around the world to take part in this internationally-hosted equivalent of the PUPC onsite event.

Physics Unlimited oversees global sites, facilitated through partnerships with educational and non-profit institutions listed here.

Competitors are given 1.5 hours to write their solutions to approximately four problems of the level and scope roughly equivalent to what one may expect in a U.S.-based AP Physics C curriculum. Therefore, problems may cover areas beyond classical mechanics.

Kinds of prizes
The standard prizes include conventional gold, silver, and bronze-level recognition, in addition to honorable mention certificates. All competitors additionally receive a certificate of participation at the particular site.

If you took part in the Premier Competition before, we hope you have both enjoyed and were challenged by the featured problems, and we encourage you to participate again this year. We also invite you to consider our other recurring events.

Finally, we would like to extend gratitide to our partners representating the international sites hosting the competition for their time and dedication, and we look forward to expanding our partnership network in the coming year.

Best of luck in your academic pursuits!
