Three science students were awarded on February 19, 2016 at the East Texas Academic Rodeo Fair. Of the six entries, two placed 1st and 2nd in the Scientific Model and Demonstration category. This makes the students eligible to apply for East Texas State Fair Scholarship which is a very select group of students from East Texas Schools.
