The Tenacity Challenge competition consisted of four events centered around the theme of tenacity and leadership.
The students worked hard preparing for the competition (see pictures below) and spent their Saturday at the event competing in the four areas. This year we sent three teams of students (our largest group!) Burlington was well represented by this talented and bright group of students!
Team Creative Minds of Burlington won second place in the Math and Science Quiz bowl!
For many members of this team it was a their third year participating in the event.
