The Intel® International Science and Engineering Fair® (Intel ISEF) , is the world's largest international pre-college science competition. It is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9–12. Each year more than 1,800 high school students from over 75 countries, regions, and territories display their independent research and compete for $4 million in awards.  

Since 2009, EPA has exhibited and shared information about environmental protection with the ISEF participants and visitors. EPA encourages the young innovators to apply science to environmental challenges and recognizes one student whose work demonstrates a commitment to environmental sustainability and stewardship with the EPA Patrick H. Hurd Sustainability Award.

EPA's award provides funding for the winning student and a chaperone to participate in and display the student's project at EPA's P3: People, Prosperity, and the Planet Student Design Competition for Sustainability in 2019. P3 is an annual event that brings together young environmental innovators and scientists to showcase their designs for a sustainable future.
