The S.T. Yau High School Science Award (Asia) [ YHSA(Asia) ] is a research-based competition for the brightest secondary students, regardless of nationality and ethnicity, to emerge early and fast. It emphasises on innovation, originality, creativity and persistence in research activities. It encourages students and teachers to formulate issues with quantitative precision and scientific rationales, with a view to nurturing students’ passion for scientific discovery, patience in investigation, and rigour in deliberation.

Why YHSA(Asia)?
• The S.T. Yau High School Science Award (YHSA) was initiated by Professor Shing-Tung Yau in 2008 and has been running successfully for over a decade in Mainland China. More than half of the awardees have received admission into Tsinghua University, Peking University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yale University, Princeton University, etc. in the last decade.
• Seven new special awards are added to this year’s competition.
• In 2020 a total of 184 teams from 18 regions joined YHSA(Asia). Participants have gained rewarding and eye-opening experiences from the Award. Their outstanding research work have drawn attention from local universities (https://yauaward-asia.hk/asia-results).
• YHSA(Asia) winning teams will be recommended to participate in the YHSA Finale with cash prize of up to RMB100,000 in 2020. Our YHSA(Asia) teams obtained excellent results in YHSA Finale last year (https://yauaward-asia.hk/finale-results).
• Participation is simple. Research reports that have been submitted/awarded in the past with other competitions, if declared as such in the research report, will be accepted by YHSA(Asia). (However, research reports that have been submitted concurrently with other competitions will NOT be accepted.)
