The North Hollywood Senior High School team has won the 30th Annual LADWP Regional Science Bowl and is heading to the National Science Bowl.
During Saturday’s virtual event, the team demonstrated “remarkable understanding of advanced science, math, and technology concepts,” according to a press release from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
Team members will each receive the $1,000 Hitachi scholarship and the school will receive $3,000 for its science department, LADWP said.
The team will also receive the Melinda Rho Memorial Trophy named in memory of the late LADWP employee and dedicated Science Bowl volunteer.
Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies High School took second place in the competition, Venice Senior High School placed third, and Harvard-Westlake Upper School came fourth.
North Hollywood Senior High School will be one of eight California teams to compete against more than 60 regional high school champions from across the country, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, in the Department of Energy National Science Bowl.
The U.S. Department of Energy National Science Bowl National Semifinals will be held virtually on May 7 for middle school teams and May 21 for high school teams and the top eight teams will compete in the national championship, July 8-12 in Washington. DC, according to the event site.
