Silver High School will be competing at the State Science Olympiad competition February 22 in Socorro, NM at NMTech after a 2nd place finish at WNMU on January 25.

Wayne Sherwood, one of the coaches said: "This year’s competition at regionals was very tough with 10 high schools competing and a total of 15 teams (some schools have more than one team). Silver High School was able to have 2 teams with 15 students on each team and 2 alternates. Socorro was the only school that outscored Silver and we edged Las Cruces by 4 points. Every event matters in Science Olympiad and there are 23 events this year and our kids did a great job in every event. I am very proud of our kids for their academic performance and great behavior this past weekend. I believe our public schools are doing an outstanding job educating kids through competitive academic competitions like Science Olympiad and Science Fair. I also want to thank the parents and community for their support by helping the students prepare for the competition and also for the generous donations from businesses. Thanks from Wayne Sherwood and Karen Knight."
