By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - A team of students from Lone Oak Middle School has won the regional competition for the 2018 National Science Bowl.

According to a press release from the U.S. Department of Energy, the team will advance to compete in the national finals this spring in Washington, D.C.

“Lone Oak Middle School is thankful for this incredible opportunity sponsored by DOE,” said Daniel Rushing, the team’s coach. 

“First of all, we thank the Lord for blessing us with our knowledge. We’d also like to thank our educators,” said Isaac Reynolds, 8th grade student and Lone Oak team captain. “Science Bowl was a great experience for us.”


The top 16 high school teams and the top 16 middle school teams in the national finals will win $1,000 for their schools' science departments. Prizes for the top two high school teams for the 2018 NSB will be announced at a later date.

Last year's first and second place high school teams received all-expenses-paid science trips to Alaska, where they learned more about glaciology, marine and avian biology, geology, and plate tectonics.

More than 14,000 students compete in the National Science Bowl each year.
