Clinton Rosette Middle School students, from left, Stephanie Vazquez, Bryce Comer and Anan Ghrayeb, pictured with adviser Kelli Hamilton, took first place at the state level of a cyber competition that challenged students to create a technology that would make their community a better place. Their idea was to charge small things, like cell phones, using wind energy. They created and tested several different types of fan blades to find the design that generated the most electricity. Each received a $1,000 savings bond for their entry.
