Connetquot High School sophomore Adam Moussa was recently presented with the Award of Excellence by the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists after attending the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders held this past June in Boston, Massachusetts.

While in attendance, he was personally taught by top professionals in the areas of science and technology, including Nobel Prize winners David J. Wineland, Ph.D., and Sheldon Glashow, Ph.D., as well as young geniuses Jack Andraka (Intel International Science and Engineering Fair 2012 grand prize winner) and Shree Bose (2011 Google Science Fair grand prize winner).

The theme of each Congress is “Greatness Awaits,” and it offers America’s finest students the opportunity to be mentored by top leaders in the field. In order to be accepted into the program, students must possess a minimum GPA of 3.5 or equivalent, and are recommended by their teacher or guidance counselor for leadership ability, academic achievement and dedication to science and technology. According to their website, the event is considered an annual gathering of America’s high-achieving high school students aspiring to be the next generation of science and technology leaders.
