Paw Paw Middle School had another strong performance at the Regional Science Olympiad Competition and once again won the Regional Championship. There are 23 events at the competition. Paw Paw earned 15 First place medals, 6 Second place medals, 1 Third place medal and 1 Fourth place medal. This is the first time we earned a top 4 medal in every event.
Our alternate team also did extremely well, taking First place in the alternate team division. Had they been competing against the other competition teams, hey would have earned 4 First place medals, 3 Second place medals, and 4 Third place medals. our alternate team actually beat our competition team in 5 events.
