Longfellow Science Olympiad team wins salute from Richmond

The Longfellow Middle School Science Olympiad team has been honored by the General Assembly for taking first place in the 2017 Virginia Science Olympiad.

The team “faced worthy competitors from throughout the commonwealth at the state competition, which was held at the University of Virginia, and won by an impressive 51-point margin,” notes the resolution, patroned by Del. Rip Sullivan (D-48th) and approved by both houses of the legislature.

For winning the state title, team members were able to participate in the 2017 National Science Olympiad tournament, held at Wright State University in Ohio.
