MiSAC UK Annual Competition 2019: How microbes help farming
A competition was introduced in 1985 in the UK to enhance student interest in microbiology. It became an annual event in 1994 and the MiSAC Annual Competition for Key Stages 3 and 4 (or equivalent) now attracts up to 2,000 student entries each year.

Each year, the topic chosen for the competition in the UK is linked to the National Curriculum. Special sponsorship provides money prizes totalling £1,000 for students and their schools. Each student entrant receives a certificate.

In 2014, the experience gained over the years by organising the UK competition helped in the development of the first mycology competition for schools in Thailand. In subsequent years, further competitions have been held for students in Thailand and China.
