The American Statistical Association presented Dahlia Dry, of Fort Myers High School, with the second award of $1,000 for her physics and astronomy project, “Plotting New Horizons: A Statistical Analysis of Potential Factors Influencing the Probability of Planetary System Formation.”

Dry is also an Intel ISEF 2019 grand award winner in physics and astronomy. She was chosen for a first award of $3,000 for her project, “Plotting New Horizons.”

The other two winners included Mark Leone, of Estero High School, and Morgan Barkhurst, of Florida SouthWestern Collegiate High School.
