Earn Trophies And Medals

Students can put what they learned in the classroom to the test in NYFPS' student competitions. The competitions draw out the full potential of every student. Competitors broaden their knowledge base, learn the value of teamwork, build relationships with like-minded peers, and develop new skillsets for success beyond the classroom. It is motivating to have the opportunity to showcase accomplishments, travel to events, receive recognition, and earn trophies for learning classroom concepts.


With a range of components, NYFPS has a competitive event for every student. Choose a competitive component that matches your interest and goals.
