Five Walla Walla High School students traveled to WSU to participate in the Imagine Tomorrow competition May 21. Freshmen Ruth Garcia-Escobedo, Sandra Escobedo-de la Cruz, Karen Maldonado-Fajardo, Edlyn Carvajal and Eva Martinez represented Wa-Hi.
They won the Best Project for Newly Participating Schools award and the Inspirational Award.
“Through the 21st Century afterschool program, they have grown through scientific methods such as trial and error, brainstorming to hypothesis, and experimentation,” Andrew Sayers, 21st Century site coordinator, said. “They have bonded as a group and learned that each person has their own strengths to add to a team.”
