The district is pleased to announce that three Oldfield Middle School students earned top place titles in the Earth Science and General Science categories of the National Science Olympiad contest.

Each year, the National Science League administers multiple-choice contests in various science categories and grade levels. Students complete the exam in April and results are announced in May.

Recognized as National Student Leaders in the Earth Science contest, eighth-grader Christopher Benincase earned first place, while his peer Jia Qi Gao received second place among all the student participants from eight schools.

In the General Science challenge, seventh-grader Jacky Xie achieved the highest score, which resulted in a four-way tie with three students from the 74 participating schools.

The district extends its congratulations to these students on this exceptional achievement.
