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. Local participants have to make arrangements with their targeted high school. Winning students contact information and test scores should be sent to Trig-Star State Coordinator James Diorio (contact info above), who will forward the information and enter the student with the highest test score into the national competition. (Forward by Monday, May 29 to meet the June 1 deadline.) The student with the highest score is eligible for a cash prize.
