Last Saturday morning, the special mentions and prizes awarded by the jury of experts to the 56th Swiss Youth in Science National Contest finalists, which was hosted by the new USI-SUPSI East Campus in Viganello, were announced.

From 21 to 23 April 2022, the 117 finalists from all over Switzerland submitted their original and innovative works to the jury of experts, who awarded the mentions (good, very good, excellent) and designated the winners of the coveted special prizes. The prize-giving ceremony took place on Saturday. All participants in the finals were automatically winners: all mentions were rewarded with a cash prize (CHF 500, 750, 1000). In addition, special prizes were awarded to particularly deserving works, thus enabling their authors to travel abroad, for instance, to represent our country in international scientific competitions.

Seven young participants from Southern Switzerland also took part in the event.
