and health issues."

This year, more than 1,500 students from more than 50 countries participated in the ISEF competition, coordinated by the Society for Science and the Public, at the San Jose Convention Center. The nonprofit organization Society for Science and the Public partners with Intel - along with dozens of other corporate, academic, government and science-focused sponsors to provide support and awards for the Intel ISEF each year.

Winners of the Addiction Science Award received cash awards provided by Friends of NIDA in a ceremony Thursday night, with a $2,500 scholarship for the first-place honoree. NIDA has developed a special section on its website, which includes other resources on addiction science, to help science fair entrants understand the criteria for the awards: http://www.nida.nih.gov/sciencefair.

The Friends of NIDA is a coalition of individuals, scientific and professional societies, patient groups and other organizations committed to the elimination of drug abuse and addiction through education, advocacy, and the promotion of broad public and private support for NIDA's research agenda. For more information, visit: http://www.thefriendsofnida.org.

The non-profit organization, Friends of NIDA, partnered with the institute to sponsor the award as part of its ongoing support of NIDA research into the causes, consequences, and treatment of drug abuse and addiction.

"Once again we are delighted to be a part of this incredible scientific competition," said Dr. William Dewey, professor and interim chairman, Virginia Commonwealth University and founder and president of the Friends of NIDA. "This year's winners seem to have an extraordinary love of science and want to use that passion to help solve some of our world's most difficult problems. We support them wholeheartedly."
