The nation’s top achievers in Advanced Placement science and mathematics courses were recognized as winners of the 2011 Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement. The annual awards honor America’s top performers in Advanced Placement Program (AP) science and math courses with a $2,000 college scholarship to one male and one female student in each state. This year, 101 high school students in 50 states – including 96 seniors, 4 juniors and 1 sophomore – were recognized. Established in 1998, the Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement is a signature program of the Siemens Foundation and is administered by the College Board.

Ramya Rangan and Albert Wu, two seniors at The Harker School in San Jose, California, were named the national winners. Each will receive a $5,000 college scholarship. The remaining 99 students will each receive a $2,000 scholarship.
