Bryn Mawr senior wins science award

March 15, 1994

WASHINGTON -- Jennifer Kalish, a 17-year-old senior at Bryn Mawr School, was named the winner of an eighth-place scholarship yesterday in the Westinghouse Science Talent Search for her study of how traces of aluminum from foil, pots and containers affect human cells.

Ms. Kalish -- a karate black belt and a point guard on Bryn Mawr's basketball team -- won a $10,000 scholarship.

The top prize of a $40,000 scholarship in the national contest for high school students was awarded to Forrest Newell Anderson, 18, of Helena, Mont., for an engineering study on plastic recycling.

Forty students from 20 states competed in the finals of the contest in Washington. A total of 1,645 high school seniors entered the Westinghouse contest nationwide.
