NTCHS science teacher, Amanda Nix, proudly shows off the awards won by Sunburst scientists at the Science Olympiad in Bozeman recently. Sunburst students not only won first place recognition in multiple categories, but also the Small School first place award for Class C!

Students in grades six through 12 competed in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) challenges in the 35th annual Montana Science Olympiad hosted by Montana State University. North Toole County High School scientists brought home top honors, being named the Small School Winner in Division C, grades nine through 12.

The team of Jenna Albarano and Josh Kearns received first place with their gravity vehicle and Paige Head, Wyatt Manthey and Josh Kearns placed first in experimental design.

The event is believed to be Science Olympiad’s largest Montana competition to date, said Suzi Taylor, director of the Science Math Resource Center, which organizes the event. Around 1,400 Montana students from 63 middle schools and 57 high schools competed. The winners are eligible to enter the national competition in Raleigh, N.C., on May 15 and 16.
