Students from the Maine School of Science and Mathematics (MSSM) joined students from around the state at Bangor High School for the Maine State Science Fair.
Several MSSM students picked up awards at Saturday's competition which included second place overall. The achievement earned Roger Van Peski, Northport; Andrew Reilley, West Kennebunk; and Abby Harvey, Bangor; a place at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) national competition being held this May in Los Angeles.
Five MSSM students have moved to the finalist stage of the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition that provides both recognition and scholarships for high schools students.
Meghan Flanigan, Pittsfield; Ross McCabe, Portland; Kevin McDonough, Scarborough; William Popov, Presque Isle; and Roger Van Peski, Northport received a certificate commemorating their achievement.
Winners of the National Merit Scholarship will be chosen from the list of finalists beginning in March 2014 and continuing into mid-June.
