Orange Student Honored by DeLauro


Washington, DC— Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) released the following statement today congratulating Jenny Liu, a resident of Orange, Connecticut, who has qualified as a Finalist in the nationwide Intel Science Talent Search.

The Intel Science Talent Search, established in 1942, is considered one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious science competitions for pre-college students. Liu is one of just 40 high school seniors to be selected as Finalists from a pool of over 1,700 participants. She, along with the other Finalists, will journey to Washington, D.C. in March to meet with scientists and national leaders, display their research, and compete for prizes, including a $100,000 top award.

“Reaching the finals of the Intel Science Talent Search is a great accomplishment, and I would like to congratulate Jenny on her dedication and success. As President Obama said in his State of the Union address last night, education and innovation are the way forward in the 21st century,” said Congresswoman DeLauro. “Jenny is one of over a thousand high school students from across the country who have participated in this competition who represent the future of our country. I applaud all of their achievements, and wish Jenny the best of luck in the rest of the competition.”
