Middle School Students Compete in Denver Student Tech Conference

Frontier Middle School and Casper Classical Academy had student representation at the Colorado Technology Student Association Conference in Denver February 22-24. In November, Wyoming held their annual event and the qualifying students travelled to Colorado to compete. The students who competed were:

Dominick Espinosa – CCA

Olivia Hammell – FMS

Lily Roberts – FMS

Autumn Lantis – FMS

Andra Jones – FMS

Edwin Lagarda – FMS

Grey Emerson – FMS

Jamos Reece  – FMS

Eight students competed amongst 1,649 Colorado middle school students in 8 out of 104 events available.

Out of the eight events entered, the students made it into the semifinalist round in 3 events and into the finalist round in one event.

In the Tech Bowl Challenge, FMS students Olivia Hammell, Lily Roberts and Autumn Lantis made it into the semifinalist round of the Tech Bowl Challenge by taking a written test to secure their place in the finalist round. Scoring well and moving into finals, they placed 4th overall in the final round. The top three places qualify for Nationals. This is a great accomplishment for a first time attendance at this conference.
