The Society for Science announced earlier this week that CHS/MST senior Sunny Wang has been named a top 300 Scholar in the 81st Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS) —the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and mathematics competition for high school seniors.
Regeneron STS recognizes and empowers the most promising young scientists in the U.S. who are creating the ideas and solutions that solve our most urgent challenges. A listing of all 300 Scholars can be found here; a total of 1,805 students around the country entered the competition this year. Each scholar will receive $2,000, and their schools will also receive $2,000 to use toward STEM-related activities. They could also be named as one of 40 Finalists, who each receive $25,000 and participate in the final competition in March. The top prize for the most promising emerging STEM leader in the United States is $250,000. The top 40 Finalists will be announced on Thursday, January 20th.
Congratulations, Sunny! We will be rooting for you!
