Maharishi School 9th-grader Shristi Sharma won first place last month in the Computer Science category at the State Science and Technology Fair of Iowa with a project titled "Phishing: Don't Take the Bait, Protect Your Sensitive Information."

She also won an Intel Excellence in Computer Science and $200 cash award. Plus, she was invited to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, PA.

"This is a tremendous honor and opportunity as I envision continuing in this field with a career in programming and cyber-protection," Ms. Sharma said.

Earlier in the spring she also won awards at the Eastern Iowa Science and Engineering Fair: an Inspiring Excellence award and an Honorable Mention.

Her research entailed sending fraudulent emails to employees at five companies to see whether those companies that had offered training to employees would be less vulnerable. She found that the companies that had previously trained their employees were 4.5 times less likely to fall for the attacks.
