This is a great competition and the students are very deserving. Congratulations to them and the competition sponsors. However, I would not call that competition the "World Cup of Science Fairs" since it is not even a science fair. That label really applies the the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair which is conducted each year by Society for Science and the Public. That competition is the international finals of all high school science fair projects in the world. This year it was held in San Jose California, had over 1,500 students involved from 60 countries and the top winners received $75,000 and $50,000 scholarships respectively. Two of the winners also received an expense paid trip to the Nobel Prize Ceremonies in December. Over $8.M in scholarships, trips, awards were given this year.
