Scandia Scholarship

Shannon O’Brien, a sixth grade student at Scandia Elementary IB World School, recently won the Polaris Industries essay contest for a scholarship to STEPS Camp this summer. STEPS is a science, technology and engineering preview summer camp at the University of Wisconsin Stout campus for girls between sixth and seventh grades. The camp offers an introduction to the world of science, technology, and engineering through hands on experiences with high tech equipment and processes. Girls from five elementary schools competed in the essay contest, and O’Brien’s essay was chosen to win the scholarship.
