Natalie Ng, the winner of the 2013 Amgen Bay Area BioGENEius Challenge and later the International BioGENEius Challenge, was a finalist in thethe INTEL Talent Search and received a $30, 000 prize.
Eric Chen, the third-place winner from the International BioGENEius Challenge took home the first place prize – $100,000. Ng and Chen were two of 40 entrants in the competition.
The 2014 Amgen Bay Area BioGENEius Challenge is open for submission! Students in grades 9-12 may enter their life science/biotech related regional fair projects as long as they meet the criteria listed on the National competition website. Applicants do not need to enter a previous fair to qualify for the Bay Area Challenge, however, we encourage students to submit projects from other regional science fairs.
