WYSE Competition held at Lake Land College

St. Anthony, Sullivan and Mattoon High Schools were victorious in their divisions at the regional competition of the Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering (WYSE) Academic Challenge held recently at Lake Land College. The event drew 403 students representing 24 high schools.

Winners and point totals of the 300 division were St. Anthony High School (486.7), first; Cumberland High School (430.8), second; Neoga High School (415.5), third; and Arthur-Lovington High School (378.4), fourth.

The winners and point totals of the 700 division were Sullivan High School (492.9), first; and Teutopolis High School (456.2), second. 

The winners and point totals for the 1500 division were Mattoon High School (486.2), first; and Effingham High School (453.7), second.

The college awarded $1000 tuition waivers to individuals who excelled in their subject areas. The recipients in the bio-science division were Maggie Mumm, St. Anthony High School and Vanessa Gabel, Effingham High School. The recipients of the chemistry division were Gabel and Lauren Schmidt, St. Anthony High School. The recipients in the computer science division were Logan Marlow, Cumberland High School and Josh Blome, Casey-Westfield High School. The recipients in the engineering graphics division were Cameron Jones, Sullivan High School and Charley Ault, Cumberland High School. Recipients in the English division were Jacob Alumbaugh, Neoga High School and Allison Davis, Martinsville High School. The recipients in the math division were Blome and Jones. The recipients in the physics division were Jake Spraul, St. Anthony High School and Jonny Ruholl, Teutopolis High School. 

Students completed written examinations in seven different areas of study: biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering graphics, English, mathematics and physics. Each student participated in two tests, and the highest scores by members of each team determined the composite team score.

 “We had a very successful day thanks to all the students, coaches, and those who gave donations or helped with the event,” said Brent Todd, director of dual credit at Lake Land College.
