Intel Science Talent Search

The 40 finalists for the Intel Science Talent Search have been selected, note how many New Yorkers there are!

Addendum: Just realized that the observation about "New Yorkers" might be taken as a reference to Jews. Actually, it was simply because California is so much more populous, but New York seems to have walloped it in geek-yield (using this metric). Also, Texas (more populous) is hardly present. This is obviously attributable to the Ashkenazi Jewish presence, but that wasn't the main thrust of my comment. Just wanted to clarify. I've added a map showing the states represented and the numbers from each state below.

Below is an alphabetic listing of their surnames....
