This year, like years in the past, we had an over-abundance of talented and driven students all with the goal of studying and traveling outside their home country. Although we were not able to grant each of the 13 finalists a prize to take home, we want to extend a big congratulations to each for the achievements they’ve already seen, and those we know will continue to come.

Although a difficult task, our judges have conveyed their top picks and we’re pleased to announce the winners:
