Seven seniors — Ayush Alag, Cameron Jones, Natasha Maniar, Ruhi Sayana, Katherine Tian, Cindy Wang and Richard Wang — were named Regeneron Science Talent Search scholars on Wednesday.

The science research competition selected 300 high school seniors in total from 1,964 entrants, awarding $2,000 to each scholar and their school. Regeneron will announce the top 40 finalists, who travel to Washington, D.C., in March to compete for the top 10 spots, on Jan. 23.

The other scholars and more information about the competition can be found on Regeneron’s website.
