Avondale student makes regional finals

Carly Crump, a senior at The Episcopal School of Jacksonville, broke a 10-year state losing streak by being named a Regional Finalist in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology 2014 for her investigation of the transmission of the dengue virus in mosquitoes. The last time a student from Florida was a Regional Finalist in the Siemens Competition was 2004-05.

The competition recognizes the top 300 high school students nationwide who completed outstanding science research projects in the last year and is administered by The College Board and funded by the Siemens Foundation. Crump will receive a $1,000 scholarship as a finalist.
The Avondale resident is a student in the Honors Science Seminar class, and at the International Science Fair in May 2014, she was awarded third place and $1,000 in the Category of Microbiology. The ultimate goal of Crump’s project is develop a pathway to eradicate the dengue virus, which is endemic in over 100 countries.
