South Orangetown Central School District

The South Orangetown Middle School Science Olympiad team medaled in three events at the Lower Hudson Valley Regional Competition at Scarsdale Middle School on March 2! In all, 36 teams from 22 schools across the area participated in the annual event.

Our medalists were:

  • Matt T. and Ian G., 1st Place, Write it/Do It
  • Matt T. and Alexis J., 8th Place, Road Scholar
  • Matt T. and Roger N., 6th Place, Battery Buggy

“We are so proud of our students who dedicated their time and effort to Science Olympiad this year. Even those who couldn’t make it to the competition showed up every week to help build or create study materials for various events,” noted SOMS Science Olympiad advisor Samantha Levine. “Other students jumped into events the week before the competition to make sure every event was covered. This showed their true commitment to the team. We wish our eighth-graders good luck at the high school level and look forward to competing again next year.”

Congratulations to our Science Olympiad medalists, team and advisors Ms. Levine, Sara Nybro, Kerry Beckmann and Lou Chugranis!
