Trig-Star is a high school trigonometry skill awards program administered by the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS), MALSCE, and a local land surveyor or engineer.



  • promotes excellence in the mastery of mathematics in high school.
  • honors students who have demonstrated superior skill among classmates at the high school level.
  • demonstrates the use and practical application of mathematics in the land surveying profession to high school students.
  • creates awareness of the land surveying profession among the mathematically skilled high school students, career guidance counselors, and high school math teachers.

If you are interested in volunteering at the High School in your neighborhood, download, complete, and submit the form to the Trig-Star Coordinator, James Diorio, at jdiorio@vhb.com or call him at 617/607-2790.


Only one TRIG-STAR contest is allowed per high school per year. We’ll mail a contest packet with contest instructions, a test packet, and a sample news release to you. Additional resources: http://www.nsps.us.com/?page=TrigStar

You, as the local sponsor, will need to make all the local arrangements with the high school. The winning student will be eligible to compete in the NSPS National Trig-Star Contest. The packet includes national contest information.
