Lawton students win $8,000 in US Army competition

Washington_Press Release_Four sixth graders from Lawton Academy of Arts and Science in Lawton received a criteria award in this year's national eCYBERMISSION competition.  With the award, each team member will receive a $2,000 US EE Savings Bond.

eCYBERMISSION is a US Army-sponsored web-based science, math and technology competition that allows students in grades six through nine to compete for regional and national awards while working to solve problems in their communities.

The "FutureDocs" team, comprised of students Tasfia Azim, Sonali Demla, Dane Sorenson and Divya Veluy, and led by Team Advisor Kay Johnson, received an "Innovation, Originality and Creativity" award and was recognized by judges for conducting surveys and educating its community about thyroid disorders and how to properly treat them.

"We congratulate the 'FutureDocs" team for their superb research and analysis during this year's eCYBERMISSION competition," said Mike Doyle, US Army eCYBERMISSION program manager.  "These innovative students were selected from thousands of their peers and show the potential that our bright young Americans have as future leaders in science, math and technology."

This year, 1,763 teams, comprised of 6,382 students submitted their research for judging.  Now in its sixth year, eCYBERMISSION has awarded more than $4.6 million in US EE Savings Bonds in support of the science, math and technology leaders of tomorrow.  Since its inception, more than 46,000 students from across the country and in US territories and Department of Defense Education Activity schools worldwide have participated in this competition.

Registration for next year's competition opens August 1.  For a complete listing of 2007-2008 winners, or for more information, visit www.ecybermission.com.
