Mariah Brooks On Tuesday, March 5, Dickinson State University hosted its annual Science Olympiad competition. Hundreds of high school and junior high students from the southwest part of North Dakota made up teams representing their schools. These teams put their skill and talents together to create various projects based on using scientific principles. Teams and projects were judged by DSU faculty, staff and students. The winning teams will advance to the state competition in Fargo, N.D.

From those teams, DSU faculty tracked the individual event scores for all the senior students. The DSU Alumni and Foundation provided a $1,000 scholarship to the top senior science student at this year’s Science Olympiad. Bowman High School senior Mariah Brooks was selected as the recipient of this scholarship.
