The article features Pearl Sawhney (senior) and her brother, Surya (sophomore), students at Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, who won first place March 2 at the Iowa Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (IJSHS) in Iowa City.

They will go to Maryland May 2-6 to present at the 50th National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, sponsored by the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force. Only two student teams (or individuals) in Iowa are invited to present their research before the national symposium and compete for significant military sponsored scholarships.

The Sawhneys' project is entitled ''Consumption of Animal Protein vs. Plant Protein: Exploring Solutions to Obesity.'' The team conducted research to determine if there is a connection between non-vegetarianism and obesity and if non-vegetarians are at a higher risk of over-eating and snacking.

Pearl and Surya have competed and won awards at multiple science fair competitions, with Pearl gaining accolades at the national level. ''With each science fair competition I have learned to be a more effective public speaker and to communicate research in a way that is understandable to non-researchers,'' says Pearl, who is looking to pursue a career in medicine.
