A Drain on the System

Utah Girl Wins Science Competition

A Utah girl won a prestigious science competition Tuesday for analyzing how to protect water quality by improving environmental buffers and changing daily behavior. Shannon Babb of Highland, Utah, earned a $100,000 college scholarship in the 2006 Intel Science Talent Search. Babb, who attends American Fork High School, spent six months studying the Spanish Fork River drainage system to assess the effects of human and animal behavior.

This must be smart people awards week or something! First I read about a guy who gets a bunch of money for his accomplishments in math and now this girl is getting a huge scholarship for some kind of science competition. It's really making me re-think my area of specialty because I don't see them giving out an award for the best "sports watcher". Of course, the week isn't over yet so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
