GCHS students win awards at CLC 2018 High School Academic Challenge
More than 130 students from seven Lake County high schools competed in the annual Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering Academic Challenge competition Feb. 3 at the College of Lake County. The regional competition pitted the area’s brightest students against each other in tests covering seven academic areas, including English, math and the sciences.
The first and second place finishers in each category, and the top two teams from each division, will advance to the North Chicago Sectional Competition March 6 at Vernon Hills High School.
Medals went to the individual on each of the seven teams with the highest total standardized score for their team; the GCHS Medalist in this category was Hannah Oelschlager. Individual awards were presented to Hannah Oelschlager (Chemistry); Jake Ryan (1st), Andrew Cornelio (2nd) and Jake Ryan (3rd) in Engineering; Dylan Ott (1st) in English and (2nd) in Physics.
Special thanks to GCHS Chemistry Teacher, Debbie Hofer, for her time and awesome coaching.
