Trig-Star is a high school trigonometry skill awards program administered by the National Society of Professional Surveyors, MALSCE and a local land surveyor or engineer.
Trig-Star promotes the study of trigonometry in high school and promotes by honoring individual students who have demonstrated superior skill among classmates at the high school level.
Trig-Star demonstrates the use and practical application of trigonometry in the land surveying profession to high school trigonometry students.
Trig-Star creates awareness of the land surveying profession among the mathematically skilled high school students, career guidance counselors and high school math teachers.
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. The NSPS website has additional information and resources.
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.
