GREENWICH, Conn.. -- Seven students from Greenwich High School have been named semifinalists in the Intel Science Talent Search 2015 competition.
The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) is the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition. Alumni of STS 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.
Students from Greenwich who were named semifinalists are:
- Jayson Chojar
- Kenneth Dorian
- Andrew Ma
- Spencer Matonis
- Maximillian Minichetti
- Spenser Curran Pevzner
- Peter Russell
Annually, students entering the Intel STS compete for more than $1.6 million in awards. Only 300 students are announced as semifinalists 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 three top awards of $150,000 each.
