The Board of Education honored three High School East students and one High School West student who were recently named Regeneron Scholars in the 2018 Regeneron Science Talent Search, the country’s oldest high school competition in the math and sciences during their meeting on Jan. 23.

High School East seniors Sydney Bracht, Cindy Li and Shrey Thaker and High School West senior Sarah Adamo were among those presented with certificates of recognition by the board of education.

The two winners from the Smithtown VFW Voice of Democracy Essay Contest were also presented with certificates. High School West student Nicholas Camson placed first in the competition and High School West Dean Mattshull took third place. The Voice of Democracy competition provides high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors the opportunity to write and record a 3-5-minute broadcast script on a patriotic theme, competing for more than $2.3 million in college scholarships and incentives. State winners receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., and compete for $152,000 in scholarships.
