Washington - It was star treatment all the way this week in the nation's capital for the seven Long Island finalists of the coveted Intel Science Search, formerly known as the Westinghouse Student Science Competition.
They sat with nobel laureates, schmoozed with politicians, smiled for TV crews and socialized with some of the brightest young minds in the country. They all felt like winners, but last night Lisa Beth Schwartz of Roslyn and Alexander Wissner-Gross of New Hyde Park found out that they finished in the top 10, and became two of this year's three winners from New York State.
For her sixth-place prize, Schwartz won $20,000 in scholarship money which she hopes to use at Harvard and, for his 10th place, Wissner-Gross took home $15,000. He will go to MIT.
