Last week, 10 Aquinas Academy eighth-grade students competed in the Region 7 Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science competition.

All 10 received second place or higher for their science presentation.

John Reed (Mars) received a perfect score — an honor earned by less than 5-percent of the participants at the competition.

Clara Osburg (Tarentum), Michael Henry (Fox Chapel), Chuck Adams (Richland) and Nate Lisanti (Sewickley) received a first- place award.

Osburg also won a special award from the Pittsburgh Chapter of the American Chemical Society for her project on Food Preservation Systems for tomatoes.

Sophia Kartsonas (Fox Chapel), Justin Panzarella (Mars), Allie Stewart (Mars), Katianne Cerny (Pine) and Robert Phillips (McCandless) received second-place awards.

Osburg, Henry, Adams, Lisanti and Reed will travel to Penn State to present their projects at the PJAS state competition.
