Science Talent Search winners, US, 1942. Science Talent Search was a prestigious research-based science competition for high school seniors in the United States. The winners of the first Science Talent Search in 1942 were Paul E. Teschan (born 1923) and Marina Prajmovsky (1924-1974), shown here with Science Service director, Watson Davis (1896-1967). Prajmovsky had immigrated to the United States from Finland when she was four, and her essay ''Chemical Death to Infection'' won the competition. She used her prize money to attend Radcliffe College and later conducted research on eye diseases.
