Congratulations to Amelia Vinarcik for her selection as a 2016 nominee for the Broadcom MASTERS national middle school science competition! A nomination distinguishes the student’s science fair project as among the top 10% in the United States this past school year. Amazing!
We are proud to call all students who submitted applications our alumni, and honor them here on this website. The top 300 semifinalists will be announced via email on September 6th, and the top 30 finalists will be announced on September 20th. The thirty finalists each win a trip to Washington, DC, where they will compete in hands-on science activities for the chance to win trips to STEM summer camps, iPads, and monetary prizes of up to $25,000. Watch the 2015 highlights video to catch the excitement.
Amelia completed essays about the science fair project, and wrote several creative essays to demonstrate problem solving and scientific thinking. Amelia earned this opportunity by placing well at our regional science fair.
