My interest and love of science grew even more in my last year of studying when I was writing my paper.

AYS Finalist: Liangzhan Sun - Hard work and dedication does pay off!

It was two years ago when I first came across a poster that read "Alltech Young Scientist Competition" while on my way to the reading room.

I was eager to read if I was eligible or not and double clicked on the link provided. I discovered that I was eligible, but what bad timing; the research paper had to be submitted before the 31st of December, exactly 20 more days to write a paper.
