Two teams of students recently represented the metro-east in the national championships of an academic competition.
Four students from Mascoutah were among the top 10 in their divisions, including:
▪ Sarah Nowak, who won fourth place in poetry.
▪ Rebecca Ferguson, who won eighth place in language arts.
▪ Lily Levrault, who won 10th place in math.
▪ Emily Nowak, who won 10th place in social studies.
The competition took place June 29 through July 2 at Walt Disney World. More than 15,000 students from across the U.S. were challenged in a variety of subjects — from agriculture and show choir to woodworking and robotics.
