OSSINING - Three Ossining students have been selected as semifinalists in one of the nation's top science competitions.

Ossining High School seniors Adam Illowsky, Abby Kamen and Caitlin Piccirillo Stosser were selected to be on the shortlist in the prestigious Intel Science Talent Search.

The students spent months working on science projects, including the effects of concussions on the brain, chemo treatments and the evolution of a fruit gene.

Ossining wasn't the only school in Westchester to have students do well in the Intel Science Talent Search. Byrum Hills High School in Armonk has eight students who've made the semifinals, more than any other school in the county.
