All teams who register and participate in the ROADS on Mars Challenge will receive a NASA certificate.

Top teams will be selected from all teams who submit their final challenge materials. The total number of awards and the prizes offered will be determined by merit.

We still hope to offer NASA center visits as our top prizes, but of course this depends entirely on the centers being open and on travel being advisable per public health guidelines.

About NASA center visits

Only U.S. Citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents are able to visit to NASA centers, and all team members visiting the center must be registered team members when their challenge materials are submitted to NESSP — no substitutions are allowed for the trip. Anyone visiting a center as part of a NESSP trip must be at least 11 years old at the time of the visit.
