Out of the 40 finalists chosen, 11 were from the tri-state area. Furthermore, out of the nine finalists who represent New York, three of them reside in New York City! The local finalists are Danielle Goldman of Bronx High School of Science, and Huihui Fan and Mimi Yen of Stuyvesant High School.
In March, they will head down to Washington D.C. for a final round of judging that will determine the recipient of the $100,000 grand prize. Congratulations to our area’s budding scientists! We hope you all do well in March!

The Intel STS Web site explains the application process:
Over eight decades, more than 130,000 students from U.S. high schools in all 50 states and territories have completed independent science research projects and submitted entries. Each completed entry consists of a written description of the student's independent research, plus an entry form that elicits evidence of the student's excellence and accomplishments.
