High School Junior Named Rensselaer Medal WinnerLongwood High School junior Chowdhury An-Noor has been awarded the Rensselaer Medal for Excellence in Science and Mathematics. 

For more than 90 years, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in conjunction with high schools around the world, has awarded the Rensselaer Medal and scholarship to promising high school juniors who represent the next generation of leaders, scientists, innovators, artists, scholars, game designers, architects, humanitarians, and entrepreneurs. 

The Rensselaer Medal was presented in 1916 with two purposes: to recognize the superlative academic achievement of young men and women, and to motivate students towards careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

The medal, the oldest prize of its kind in the United States, is awarded at more than 2,000 high schools throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia.

The merit scholarship, with a minimum value of $25,000 per year, is guaranteed for four years (five years the bachelor of architecture program) for each medalist who is accepted and enrolls at Rensselaer.
