Long Island students in science competition

Long Island is home to 58 of the 300 high school students nationwide who reached the "scholars" level of the Regeneron Science Talent Search for 2017.

Long Island is home to 58 of the 300 high school students nationwide who reached the "scholars" level of the Regeneron Science Talent Search for 2017. More than 1,700 students entered the competition, formerly run by Intel. Each scholar receives a $2,000 award with an additional $2,000 going to his or her school. The 300 will be narrowed down on Jan. 24 to 40 finalists who will compete in Washington, D.C. You can read more about the science students. This database was posted on Jan. 4, 2017.
