Congratulations Regeneron Semifinalists Alia Rizvon and Daniel Kim!
The Regeneron Science Talent Search, a program of Society for Science & Public is the nation's most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors. Alumni of this competition have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world's most coveted science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and National Medal of Science. Annually, students entering the Regeneron STS compete for more than $3.1 million in awards. Only 300 students are announced as scholars each year. From this select pool, 40 finalists are then invited to Washington, D.C. in March to participate in final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for the top award of $250,000.

Congratulations Alice Wu!
Siemens National Finalist
Siemens received approximately 1700 project submissions this year (they segment these submissions into 6 different geographic regions of the country).
In the Midwest region where Alice's team competed she was named a regional finalist which means her team represented one of the "top-5" team projects submitted from the Midwest.
This past Saturday those top-5 projects presented to a panel of judges at Notre Dame University and they were picked as the top overall team winner in that region...meaning they are moving on to the National Finals of the competition.
Alice and her team (as winners of the Midwest region) will now compete with the winning teams of the other 5 geographic regions.... meaning that Alice's project is now considered one of the "top-6" team projects in the country at this point.
In December, they will place anywhere from 1st through 6th place and she and her teammates will split scholarship awards as follows:
