Intel Science Talent Search Winners

From the more than 1,800 who applied for the 2015 Intel Science Talent Search, only a select few – 40 truly exceptional high school seniors – were selected as finalists and invited to Washington, D.C., to present original research to judges, showcase their work, and compete for a piece of the more than $1.6 million in prizes awarded through the event.

This year, in place of the previous prize structure honoring a single Grand Prize winner, three first-place Medal of Distinction awards and prizes of $150,000 were presented in three categories: Basic Research, Global Good and Innovation. Additionally, second- and third-place winners received awards of $75,000 and $35,000, respectively.

Other finalists received awards of $7,500.

In total, more than $1.6 million was awarded overall to finalists, semifinalists and their schools through the competition.

Intel announced the following winners of the 2015 Intel STS at a black-tie gala at the National Building Museum on March 10.
