WOOOW - there are many benefits, both present and future, to be gleened from this chance to show that the kids - OUR KIDS - WHO WANT TO, WHO HAVE THE ABILITY, and have the desire and the determination to excell to a level to qualify to compete on this international level, CAN AND WILL! this is our chance to show-case our abilities above and beyond the highly labor-intensive, construction, tourist service industries and possibly attract the necessary think-tank type minds which could attract bigger and better economic engines that our state needs. also a chance to attract other students into expanding their S-T-E-M ed foundations in school. THE PROVERBIAL TIP OF THE ICE-BERG! CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR LOCAL QUALIFIERS, their parents, schools, supporters and their communities!!!
