ISELIN, N.J., Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Siemens Foundation today recognized the semifinalists and regional finalists of the 2013 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology, the nation's premier research competition for high school students. One hundred regional finalists are invited to advance to the next round of the competition, where they will vie for the highest science honor awarded to high school students. Three hundred thirty-one semifinalists were also announced. 

"These incredible students have invested significant time and energy to advance research and exploration in critical fields," said David Etzwiler, CEO of the Siemens Foundation. "I commend the finalists for their outstanding achievements and wish them luck in the next phase of the competition."

The 2013 Siemens Competition generated unprecedented participation, showcasing students' growing interest in science, math and technology subjects. A record 2,440 students registered for this year's competition and a total of 1,599 projects were submitted for consideration.
