PJAS (Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science) is the state sponsored science fair where students design and perform their own science research project and present their findings to a panel of adult scientist judges.  Five hundred and twenty students from 51 schools in the 9 surrounding counties participated in the PJAS Competition held at Slippery Rock University on Saturday, March 1st. 

Out of those 520 students, 45 New Castle students received 1st place awards!  Forty of our students received 2nd place awards, and none had a third or fourth award!  This is the largest group of 1st place winners of ANY school (private, public, parochial, cyber, charter or home-school) in the entire state of PA!  

Thanks to all 85 of the great New Castle kids who presented, and congratulations to the 45 students who will represent New Castle at the PJAS State Meeting in May.

Special thanks to the following teachers/sponsors for the hundreds of hours they put in after school to prepare and coach these fine students:  Mr. Bill Bradley, Mrs. Susan Harlan, Mr. Chadd Quimby, Mrs. Suzette Senchak, and Mrs. Leah Ann Williams.
