STS finalists bound for Washington

Forty vie for top awards in 2013 Intel Science Talent Search

Young researchers from 21 states have made it to the final stage of the 2013 Intel Science Talent Search, earning the chance to compete for a total of $630,000 in awards.

The finalists will visit Washington, D.C., March 7–13 to see the White House and other national landmarks, present their research in a poster session at the headquarters of the National Geographic Society and attend a black-tie awards gala at the National Building Museum.

“We commend the 40 Intel Talent Search finalists on their successes so far and look forward to watching them progress not only during the finals in Washington, but also in their future careers,” says Elizabeth Marincola, publisher of Science News and president of Society for Science & the Public, which has operated the competition since 1942. Intel has sponsored the program for 15 years.
