Mellon Student Wins First Place in Phipps Fairchild Challenge Essay Contest
November 29, 2012
Sarah DelFrate, an eighth grade student at MMS, won first place in the Phipps Fairchild Challenge Essay Contest for her essay about being unplugged from technology and social media for a 24 hour period.  Students in Mrs. Bronen's Conceptual Physics class completed this assignment as an introduction to a unit on electricity in order to make them more thoughtful about the use of technology, electricity, and social media in their everyday lives.  The top Mellon essays were selected by a team of Mellon teachers and sent to the contest. Sarah's well written essay was then selected overall for first place.  As a result, Sarah will be invited to be on the Saturday Light Brigade radio program in December along with the 2nd and 3rd place winners from this challenge.
