Regeneron Science Talent Search, the most prestigious science high school competition in the country, named seven HCHS seniors as national Regeneron Scholars (formerly known as semifinalists) to a cohort of 300. Forty finalists will be announced on January 22nd and will participate in Washington, D.C.
The Regeneron Science Talent Search scholars were selected from 1,993 applications received from 659 high schools across 49 states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, Guam and eight countries. Scholars were chosen based on their exceptional research skills, commitment to academics, innovative thinking and promise as scientists and hail from 192 American and international high schools in 39 states and Guam.
Congratulations to our extraordinary scientists and their mentors, I would like to thank Ms. Reiss and Mr. Frankel for their work with many of these students in SRS.
