PULLMAN, Wash.—A group of students from Pullman High School placed in the Top 16 at the National Science Bowl Monday, winning $1,000 for their school science department.
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science hosted the 2014 competition in Washington D.C.
The team was among regional champions from 68 high schools. Students from Mira Loma High School in Sacramento, Calif. beat the Westview High School team from Portland, Ore. for first place.
“I congratulate this year’s National Science Bowl Champions, as well as all of the finalists, for their remarkable success in this highly competitive and prestigious academic tournament,” said Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. “These students are our Nation’s future scientists and engineers, and they will help sustain America’s competitiveness.”
