Alex Abad, an eighth-grade student, won first place and will advance to the next level of competition, a written exam to determine eligibility for the state competition. All state winners are eligible to win the national championship and the first prize of a $25,000 college scholarship. Participants, from left, first row are Alex Abad. Second row: Annie Hagenbuch; Ryan Williams; Tim Gallagher; Josh Gronka, alternate; Jared Bozinko; and Abby Lapinski.
