Students Win Industrial Tech Awards
May 12, 2014Mt Pleasant High School
Nick Sandeen, Russell Heerdt and Rebecca Lehman participated in the Southeast Polk Industrial Technology Expo Friday in Des Moines. This is considered the “state tournament” for Industrial Technology. Students work on projects throughout the school year and bring those projects to the Expo to be judged. First the judges evaluate the projects individually, awarding blue, red and white ribbons. Then from among all of the blue ribbons they select three outstanding projects and award gold, silver and bronze medallions. For seniors, East Polk Rotary offers a scholarship contest awarding three $500 and one $1000 scholarship. All three of the MPCHS students - Nick, Russell and Rebecca - were awarded gold medallions. Rebecca Lehman also won the $1000 scholarship competition. Congratulations!
