Student's Science Savvy Brings Rewards


Alder, T., Science News


Forty high school seniors will compete for $205,000 in scholarships as finalists in the 54th annual Westinghouse Science Talent Search in Washington, D.C., March 8 to 13.

A 41st finalist, Soo Yuen Kim, 17, of Brookville, N.Y., died in an auto accident Nov. 28, 1994, shortly before completing her project. Friends put the final touches on her application, and her teacher submitted it. Because judges must interview finalists before awarding the top scholarships, Kim's project is not eligible for further awards.

However, Westinghouse Electric Corp., which sponsors the competition in partnership with Science Service, will give $5,000 to Jericho High School, which Kim attended.

The top three finalists will win scholarships of $40,000, $30,000, and $20,000, respectively. Other top 10 finalists will receive $15,000 or $10,000 each. The remaining students will receive $1,000 scholarships.

New York produced the highest number of finalists - 15. California, Florida, and Michigan tied for second place, with three each.

The finalists are:

* California: Franz Edward Boas, Irene Ann Chen, and Elaine Wei-Yin Yu, La Jolla H.S., La Jolla.

* Florida: Neil Ashok Hattangadi, Winter Park H.S., Winter Park; Kara Jane LeVine, Rutherford H.S., Springfield; Christian Basil Miller, The Benjamin School, North Palm Beach.

* Indiana: Daniel Kalman Biss, Bloomington H.S. North, Bloomington.

* Iowa: Nathan Daniel Holmes, Davenport West H.S., Davenport; Amy Rosemary White, Fort Madison Senior H.S., Fort Madison.

* Kansas: Martin Tibor Stiaszny, Shawnee Mission South H.S., Shawnee Mission.

* Maryland: Samit Dasgupta, Montgomery Blair H.S., Silver Spring.

* Michigan: Katherine Ann Duncan, Pennfield H. …
