Each year, the AIST Foundation sponsors three major contests for high school, undergraduate and graduate students:

AIST Foundation Video Contest

This contest challenges students to research the steel industry and produce a three-minute original video that helps to brand the industry as a potential career field. The videos educate young viewers about the steel industry. The contest is open to high school and university students.
