Alyssa Rawinski has accomplished an amazing and difficult task... She has been announced as a Science Talent Search Scholar (formerly known as an STS Semifinalist), which means her research project has been selected as one of the top 300 in the nation!!!! (see announcement below).
About 2000 students each year enter this very prestigious national competition, and after a rigorous selection process only 40 are chosen to attend the week-long Science Talent Search Competition held in Washington DC each year... Alyssa has made the first cut!!! She will be awarded $2000 for this tremendous accomplishment, and an additional $2000 will be given to the Science Seminar program here in our District!...
The other two students who applied (it's a lengthy application process, and kudos to them for doing it!!) and were unfortunately not selected: these are Amber Michel and Molly Nehring... Great job ladies, your research was definitely competitive and at a level appropriate for STS!!
In the entire San Luis Valley, there has only been one other STS Scholar to have achieved this level, and that is our very own Tayler Rocha back in 2014... Wish Alyssa luck as her research is considered for the top 40 student projects in the nation!!!
This was the only award given in Colorado. Ms. Loree Harvey was also recognized as a “Teacher of Merit”
