Students find success at national Chinese competition

By Tori King, communications intern

A little over a year ago, hundreds of students from across the country traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah, for the second annual National Math-Science-Arts Competition. The first year of this competition, Licking Heights brought only two students. Last year, the district brought 20 students, ranging from eighth-graders to seniors and Students placed in the character bee and the performing category.

This year’s competition started off a little rocky. Las Vegas, where the competition was held, had snow for the first time in ten years! The Clark County School District had a snow day on Friday, and local students were not able to attend. Even with many of the technical difficulties, the competition continued - and Licking Heights students managed to win in almost all categories!

Unlike last year, the performing and visual arts categories used traditional OMEA ratings of I, II, or III, with I being superior. 

Congratulations to the students who were awarded the following:
