MHS Science Olympiad Team Heads to State Tournament

The Mason High School Science Olympiad team will represent our community once again in state-level competition. This year’s state tournament takes place April 26 in Columbus.
 
The MHS team qualified after a sterling performance at the regional tournament on March 1.The school sent two groups to the regional high-school-level competition, and the teams showed their strength by coming in first and second respectively. In fact, every MHS competitor placed in at least one event during regionals!
 
“I’m so proud of our students! Although Science Olympiad is a competitive event, these events are team competitions requiring teamwork, group planning, and cooperation. Our students understand the power of collaboration, and that’s one of the reasons they are so successful!” said Aimee Hansen, MHS science teacher and MHS Science Olympiad team coach.
