OSSINING, N.Y. -- Two Ossining students earned top awards last week at the International Sustainable World Project Competition in Houston.

Ossining High School seniors Julia Riley and Yasir Khan received a gold medal and silver medal, respectively, at the competition.

Julia won one of six gold medals in the Environment—Health and Disease Prevention category at I-SWEEEP for her research on the complex enzymatic pathway that regulates communication between neurons and the brain. She received $750.

She conducted her research at the Columbia University College of Medicine.

Yasir earned one of 12 silver medals in the Environment—Health and Disease Prevention category for his research on babesiosis, an infectious tick-born blood disease common in the Northeast. His research developed novel tools that will allow blood banks in the United States to begin screening for babesiosis. He received $400.

Yasir conducted his research at the New York Medical College.

The I-SWEEEP science fair encourages students to present their innovative ideas in energy, engineering and the environment to create a more sustainable world.

Students who win top prizes at state or national science fairs are invited to participate.
