Our congratulations and BRAVOS go to all students who participated, with special commendation to Ben Pribanic for winning the school level competition. Ben will go on to take a written qualifying exam in February, which will determine if he continues on to the state level competition on April 1.

The contest is designed to motivate students to learn about the world and how it works.
