The 37th Annual WYSE Regional Academic Challenge Competition, which is sponsored by the University of Illinois' Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering division, was held at Southwestern Illinois College on February 3rd. Dupo High School took an academic team of 19 students to compete against the top students from all other area schools. They were required to take two tests in the areas of Math, Chemistry, English, Physics, and Biology. I am proud to announce that Dupo High School had EIGHT students place within the top 3 spots for the various subjects! This is the most we've had in at least 10 years. The following students were recognized for their achievement at the competition:
Micheala Rouggly - 3rd place in Chemistry
Brady Beggs - 2nd place in Chemistry
Lexie Stevens, Austin Brockman, & Elizabeth Nelson - all tied for 3rd place in Math
Jarret Dixon & Brady Beggs - both tied for 2nd in Math
Taylor Law - 3rd place in Physics
Brady and Jarrett will be advancing to Sectionals in March to be held at McKendree!
Congratulations to those that placed and to the whole team for doing a great job!
