 Nuclear essay contest nets students $1,500 apiece via The Post Register

Two local high school students will receive $1,500 scholarships after winning an essay contest on nuclear science and technology.

David Hill of Skyline High School won the 9-10 grade level contest with his essay titled, “The Benefits of Nuclear Technology.”
