My dd wants to enter the Intel science talent search contest Its an awesome contest and has great scholarships. Her school has an application process for students that want to enter. the program. i'm not sure of all the details yet. other than she has to take at least one extra class and she has to start on the project next year. She signed up to get the application last week and today they were handed out. She's suppose to get a teacher recommendation and write an essay as well as fill out the application. When she went to get it she found out she already has 4 teacher recommendations and the teacher that gives out the application said she doesn't need to write an essay. The teacher in charge said she already knows how well she writes she's had her as a student. She told her to just put her name and official class on the application and she's already in. She's sooo excited.
