Society for Science & the Public has named Paul Case, senior, a top 300 scholar in the Regeneron Science Talent Search — the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and mathematics competition for high school seniors.
Almost 2,000 students entered the competition this year. Case is among the top 15 percent of applicants chosen for this extraordinary honor. He will receive a monetary award, plus a $2,000 gift to The Barstow School to use toward STEM-related activities. The top 40 finalists will be named January 23; each will receive a $25,000 prize. The top prize for the most promising emerging STEM leader in the United States is $250,000.
“We hope that Paul Case is highlighted as a role model for others and inspires more students from your area to participate in scientific research,” said Allie Stifel, director of the Regeneron Science Talent Search.
