Congratulations to Schalmont High School students Emma Campbell and Annabelle Masick who won a competition for their Civil Engineering and Architecture class!

For their final design project, students in Ms. Stearns’ class worked in pairs to propose developments for the former WGY tower area such as apartment buildings, sports complexes, gun ranges and resorts. A group of local architects, engineers and community members judged the projects.

Congratulations also to Ashley Boyd and Molly Montgomery, Patrick Delaney and Malachi Lewis, and Jaleel Khan and Holden MacEntee who received honorable mentions!
