PJAS 2023 State Competition

Four students traveled to Penn State University with Mrs. Sforza on May 14-16 for the PJAS State Competition. All four students earned a first place for their presentations! This was no easy feat this year after a technology glitch forced several students to give an audio presentation with no visual slides. Our students rose to the challenge, maintained composure, and impressed the judges. This called for a delicious celebration with ice cream from the creamery, a big walk around campus, and a visit to the Nittany Lion shrine!

Congratulations on your 1st place awards!

  • Clara Lopresti, OCHS'26 - behavioral psychology
  • Anna Nguyen, OCHS'25 - biochemistry
  • Ella Reed, OCHS'24 - ecology
  • Gretchen Waruszewski, OCHS'25 - chemistry
