La Jolla High School students have won $1,000 scholarships from the
Green Skills Competition, where participants were asked their ideas on
how make the military more green, the only scholarships awarded to San
Diego County students.
The winners, sophomores Joshua
Marsters, Maya Laksham and Ulysse Carion, and senior Shauna Jellison,
were asked to describe a way that they could reduce their impact on the
environment in their daily lives. Students were given a choice of
artwork or a video.
The La Jolla High students involved
became aware of the competition through their physics instructors and
the school Science Team and won the only cash prizes -- the $1,000
scholarships -- that were awarded to San Diego School county students.
Both girls (Jellison and Laksham) were given the prizes for their
artwork, while the boys (Carion and Marsters) were rewarded for their
work in video production.
The students will be awarded their
scholarships this Saturday, Nov. 5, at the at the Fame Gala taking place
at the San Diego Air and Space Museum.
