At the State Science and Engineering Fair of Florida (SSEF) seven Episcopal students, including Avondale resident Carly Crump, earned place awards, cash prizes and scholarships and a place at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).

Crump, a senior, earned first place in her category and was awarded a $2,500 a year scholarship for four years at the University of Florida. In addition, Crump was named as a Grand Award Winner, called a Ying Scholar, for which she received a plaque and check for $1,000. As a Ying Scholar, Crump will represent the State of Florida and the Northeast Florida Region at ISEF in Pittsburgh, Penn.

At the SSEF Opening Ceremony Crump was a Jason Speaker, addressing the crowd of more than 2,000 students, teachers and chaperones with her motivational talk. This was Crump’s fourth year representing ESJ’s region at the state fair. Her project focuses on the transmission of the Dengue virus in mosquitoes.

Other Episcopal winners were Andre Royce (first), who will also attend ISEF, Crystal Ji (second), Wenduo Nie (second), Zachary Zeller (third), Alice Choi (third) and Christian Bilgrien (fourth).
