High school seniors interested in science can now apply for the 2014 Intel Science Talent Search for a chance to win thousands of dollars and a week’s stay in Washington D.C.
The contest, which is run by Intel and the Society for Science and the Public, pits students who are in their final year of secondary school against one another to determine which student has the best research project. Last year’s winner, Sara Volz, earned $100,000 for her research on algae biofuels.
Participants who finish in the top 40 receive an all-expense paid trip to the District of Columbia, a chance to win thousands of dollars and a possible opportunity to meet President Barack Obama.
Applications are due by Nov. 13, and visit http://evtnow.com/5qw to apply or to learn more information about the contest.
