Good job V! I'm sure it was your ability to communicate and your enthusiasm as well as the quality of your project that gave you the award. Personally i think you should have gotten FIRST place, but I wasn't asked.

That was quite an honor for the judges to commend you so highly and to offer you an internship even. As a scientist myself, I know how strongly we feel about teaching because you will be the next generation to make the discoveries and apply the new knowledge that carries on the work we left off. Inspiring young people with a vision of making the world and peoples' lives better through careful, creative research is, I think, one of our highest achievements.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing what new projects you come up with in the fall.

All the best,
