APS and the American Association of Physics Teachers jointly sponsor a special award at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), which took place in May in Portland, Oregon. One of the judges for this year’s award was Jessica Clark, APS Public Outreach Coordinator, shown here at left in the front row. Shaking Jessica’s hand and looking moderately happy is first place winner Yiyi Deng. Next to her in the front row are second place finisher Yun-Hsin Chao of Taiwan and third place winner Meredith MacGregor, a high school freshman. In the second row are (l to r) Michael Pizer, Evan Frank, and Kevin Claytor, each of whom received honorable mention.
