"You Be The Chemist" Students Rise to the Challenge

Five schools (Forked Island/E.Broussard, J.H. Williams Middle School, Erath Middle School, North Vermilion Middle School, and Rene Rost Middle School) participated in the event.  Each school held study sessions and students tested to determine the top scorers.  A total of 31 middle school students qualified to participate.  Those students enjoyed pizza, cookies and soft drinks provided by DOW Chemical prior to the challenge.  Three students emerged as top scorers after approximately 2.5 hours of chemistry questioning.  They are pictured left to right: Carson Theriot, 2nd Place and winner of a Go Pro camera, Avery Franques, 1st places and winner of an IPad mini, and  Garrick Baudoin, 3rd place and winner of "Beats" headphones.
