Congratulations to all of this year's participants for such outstanding research projects. This year the 10-12th grade team category was extraordinarily competitive. Many of those who receive an Honorable Mention would have won the Grand Prize only a few years ago.

Note: for the rest of the prizes there were individual, team (consisting of 2-6 students) and large group awards for two groups: 6-9th grade and 10-12th grade. Team names are listed by submission.
