Friday started off early - the Grand Awards ceremony started at 9, so we started walking over at 7:45 to make sure we got a great spot on line. This sounds inconsequential, but this is a BIG thing! Line position is everything.
The Grand Awards are really exciting. The energy is high as everyone waits to see who the winners are. We were again welcomed by Society for Science President, Maya Ajmera, before they started going through all the categories. Both LISEF and NYSSEF did very well across every category we had projects in.
The most exciting news of the day was when we got to Microbiology and Lexi was announced as the 3rd place winner in her category!
Today was Grand Awards and all the girls worked very hard to get here, as it was an invaluable experience, they networked and made many lifelong friends.
Lakxshanna Raveendran (Lexi) had the honor of walking on the world stage as she placed 3rd internationally in Microbiology.
Afterwards, Team LISEF went to an Escape Room, while Team NYSSEF went to the Coca-Cola Factory. It was and exciting and exhausting week and the girls were more than ready to head home tonight and catch up on their Commack life.
