On Friday, April 22nd twenty-five students from the Menomonie High School traveled to UW-Stevens Point to participate in the 2022 State Science Olympiad Competition. The varsity team had an outstanding performance and took home the 2nd place trophy. A number of students competed on exhibition teams, and while those teams could not place in competition, students could place in individual events.


Students were able to take part in various STEM events Friday on the UW-Stevens Point campus prior to the competition on Saturday.


The Menomonie High School team is coached by MHS science teachers Michele Huppert, Bill Dingwall and Jessie Weinberger.
