Two NCH 5th graders: Finalists in a NASA essay writing contest

Two NCH fifth graders, Reilly O'Rourke and Maddox Cook both qualified as finalists for their grade level.

NASA will judge essays only in comparison to other essays from the same grade band (4th – 5th grade students, 6th – 8th grade students, and 9th – 12th grade students). Judges will select up to twenty-five winners from each grade band (seventy-five total winners).

Winners will receive an invitation to participate in a live, virtual recognition event with NASA scientists and engineers including virtual tours of NASA Glenn facilities. Students will have an opportunity to have their questions answered by the NASA researchers. Two winners from each grade band will have their essays published on a NASA Glenn web page.
