Maeona Moseley competed with SARSEF at the 8th grade level and won 1st place which gave her a nomination for Broadcom Masters. A nomination to Broadcom Masters is the highest honor for middle schoolers at SARSEF and puts Maeona in the top 10% of middle school science projects in the US. She can now enter a national competition with all of her hard work and diligence!


Bryan Lowe competed in the State Geography Bee in Phoenix after winning 1st place during our school competition. He placed in the Top 15 out of 100 contestants at the state level.


Congratulations to both Maeona and Bryan!
