Beaumont at State Science Day

It takes a few weeks to calculate the achievements of all the entrants of State Science Day, held at Ohio State University on May 11, but Beaumont students did very well.

Of the 18 Beaumont girls who submitted work at the state level, the Ohio Academy of Science (OAS) awarded nine students a rating of Excellent, and nine students a ration of Superior (the highest rating). Additionally, there are hundreds of awards sponsored by government agencies, organization and corporations, and Beaumont students won nine of these awards as well.

Here's the full listing of awards from State Science Day. (More on the OAS is here.) Congratulations to everyone for all their hard work and dedication.
