(Comments from the editor: I was especially impressed that the winners represented three different ethnic backgrounds, including a white and a black student and one who was born in Nepal, who came to the US as a small child when his father “Won a lottery” of well educated young people to get a visa to come to the US permanently, a program that is being questioned by the current administration.)
