"We're thrilled and proud of each of these students," said McCullen. "All of them had to qualify at the Regionals to represent the state. That's a really big deal for our students."

McCullen said the students are the greatest beneficiaries of the competitive experience. Some will qualify for scholarship money through their participation.

"These students have an opportunity to demonstrate their technical skills as well as their leadership abilities," she said. "It gives them a leg-up in their given technical areas."
