. . . "I am a senior at North Hills High School in Pittsburgh, PA. At school I am involved in a range of activities. I am the captain of my school's Mock Trial team, president of Ski Club, and founder and president of Political Club. Additionally, I am active in Latin Club, Health Careers, and Model UN. My favorite subject is AP US Government and Politics, but I also find my AP Biology class fascinating. Next year in college I hope to pursue a pre med, most likely Biology, major with a minor in Political Science.
. . . I have a diverse spread of interests. I love reading; my favorite book is The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. I like to study philosophy, mythology, and Greco-Roman culture. I enjoy drawing abstract artwork. I am an avid skier and swimmer. I closely follow current events in the news, and enjoy discussing or debating politics and policy. I love listening to music; my favorite artists are The Rocket Summer and Metro Station. My favorite genres of music are pop, alternative, rock and electronic. However, my deepest interest has always been medicine.
. . . I first became involved with the National Gallery for America's Young Inventors when I was inducted for my invention PaceMate back in 1998. Since then I have had the privilege of attending many inductions, and over the years I have had the honor of meeting many inspiring and impressive people. Some of my best friends are from the 2007 Student Board, and I plan on keeping in touch with them for the rest of my life."

. . ."I am a senior at Hudson High School in Hudson, Ohio where I am a member of the varsity lacrosse team and National Honors Society. I served as a class representative for three years for my school's student government and was also a member of the Hudson High School Chamber Chorus.
. . . I hope to attend Indiana University next fall with the intention of going pre-med. In school, I have always been fascinated with the subject of biology, however, I am an avid reader and am equally as fascinated with the study of literature. My favorite books include "Little Women" and "Jane Eyre"; I have a tendency to favor 19th century literature. Aside from reading, I enjoy running, playing the guitar and laughing with my friends and family in my spare time."

2004 Inductee into the National Gallery for America's Young Inventors. I am top ten in my class, 3.985 GPA, favorite subject: math, Going to study: Film Production and Biomedical Engineering, either at University of Southern California, Grand Valley State U., or Syracuse University

My parents, my girlfriend's father (passed away due to Brain Cancer), anyone who makes a difference in another person's life.

"I'm a senior at Hawken School in Chesterland Ohio, and participate in varsity swimming and field hockey, student government, and the student writing center.  My favorite subjects this year are English and physics, but I hope to pursue environmental science in college.  I also would like to continue to study Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.  In my free time, I work at Case Western Reserve University's Math and Science School, help local schools develop hands-on environmental science curriculum for elementary and middle-schoolers, write for Teen Voices and TeenInk magazines, and teach Sunday school at my church. 

I love gardening, and helped my school start an organic garden this fall which will supply our cafeteria with fresh, organic produce.  My favorite TV show is The Office, my favorite movie is Dr. Strangelove (or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb), and my favorite directors are Michele Gondry, Tim Burton, Baz Luhrmann, and Ken Burns.  I listen to NPR religiously-my favorite shows are "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" and "The Capital Steps."  

. . . "I attend Pine Tree High School in Longview, Texas, where I belong to the golf team, Teen Court, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Young Republicans, and am a Pirate Buc (a group similar to the Kiwanis Club). Chemistry is my favorite I hope to attend Texas A&M or the University of Arkansas but my major remains undecided.
. . . My hobbies include golfing, fishing, sports, cooking, and hanging out with friends. I have a small lawncare service that earns me spending money throughout the summer months. Personally, I live with my parents and two eleven year-old yellow labrador family members. I also have one sister that attends Texas A&M."
