MCS Students Excel at Science CompetitionsBoth Mason High School and Mason Middle School had strong showings at two recent science competitions.

Two MHS students advanced to the final round of the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair (BSEF) 2017 at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the Ohio State University campus. MHS senior Akul Rajan advanced to the final round of BSEF judging, and sophomore Maanasa Mendu also advanced to the final round and was selected to present at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angeles, CA from May 14-19. ISEF is one of the largest and most prestigious science fairs in the world for pre-college students. Each year over 1,700 students compete from over 70 countries, regions, and territories around the world.

MMS received the Harold C. Shaw Outstanding School Award at this year's State Science Day. The Award is a very elusive milestone for Ohio's schools. In 2017, 335 schools competed at State Science Day, but only seven of them earned the coveted Shaw Award. The 69th Annual State Science Day was held on May 13 and was hosted by the Ohio State University. More than 1,200 students competed for nearly $700,000 in sponsored awards and scholarships. 

"Congratulations to all on these amazing awards! Our students and staff strive every day to reach high levels of learning in science, so this recognition is well deserved.  Just think about the impact we can make on the world with such amazing scientists in our midst!" shared Mason City Schools Chief Academic Officer Dr. Heather Sass.
