Five students from the Great Neck Public Schools—four from North High School and one from South High School—have been named 2019 Regeneron Science Talent Search Scholars. They are Aaron Geula, Michelle Goh, Christopher Lu and Joshua Rothbaum of North High, and Ethan Wang of South High.
Great Neck’s five Regeneron Scholars are among 300 semifinalists nationwide, who were selected from an applicant pool of nearly 2,000 students. Scholars will each receive $2,000, with a matching amount for their schools. On Jan. 23, 40 of the top 300 Scholars will be named Finalists and compete in Washington, DC, in March.
The Regeneron competition is the former Westinghouse and then the Intel Science Talent Search. The Talent Search, begun in 1942, is the nation's oldest, and often considered its most prestigious, pre-college science competition.
