Kudos

I am always amazed when students from Yeshiva high schools place in contests like the Intel Science Talent Search. With the dual curriculum that they are expected to keep on top of, this already prestigious achievement is even more of an accomplishment for a Yeshiva student, in my opinion. Undertaking a project that is worthy of submission in the Intel STS demands hours and hours of the contestants' free time every week, and with the Yeshiva school day generally at least two hours longer than most non-Yeshivas, - and with many Yeshivas having Sunday classes - these students are sacrificing their precious free time that is already in such short supply. So congratulations to:

Chad Morgan Sandler (age 17), North Shore Hebrew Academy High School

Rafael Simcha Holzer (age 16), Rambam Mesivta

Update: A commenter mentioned the Siemens-Westinghouse competition, so I will congratulate the Yeshiva-attending semifinalists of that contest as well (as well as all the winners of the competition):

Daniel Hefter, Davis Renov Stahler Yeshiva High School for Boys, Woodmere

Batya Herzberg, Stella K. Abraham High School For Girls, Hewlett

Daniel Katz, Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway, Cedarhurst

Toby Klein, Stella K. Abraham High School For Girls, Hewlett

Jacob Loewenstein, Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway, Cedarhurst

Lauren Sipzner, Yeshiva University High School for Girls, Holliswood (Regional Finalist - Middle States Region)

Jaimie Stettin

What about Lauren Sipzner and Jaime Stettin’s project that made it to the
2005 - 06 Siemens Westinghouse Competition Middle States Regional Finals? I taught them science in junior high.

That certainly is a commendable feat, and thanks for pointing it out. It doesn't, however, fall under the purview of this post, which is the difficulty of submitting a winning project to these contests while attending a dual-curriculum school.

I understand completely your point. You are correct, that the yeshiva students deserve all the credit in the world for earning this prestigious recognition while completing a dual-curriculum. I simply did not want the accomplishments of the students within our community to go unnoticed by your readers.

Congrats to the Five Town Yeshiva teens who help elevate the often maligned name of our dear community.And to think not one of the sbumitted scientific entries included "An examination of preferred procreation methodology in the advancement of gender specific emanation based on random data as collected at FT Sabbath meal discussions".
