Finally, Bennett's Mill Middle School students Antonio Brewer and Jerel Clavo, Jr. also advanced to state with their project about the Manhattan Project.
These projects are major undertakings for the students, and they involve a great deal of research and time outside of class. The competition also takes committed, talented teachers to guide students along the way. We are blessed to have many such teachers in our participating schools, including our own Mr. Harris, Ms. Douglas, Ms. Fulwider, and Ms. Stein. Congratulations to students, teachers (and parents!) alike!
