Each year, two of the highest-achieving students from each state are selected as delegates to the United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP), which is held in Washington, D.C. every March. We are THRILLED that Hamden High School Senior Mariam Khan was just notified that she has been selected to represent Connecticut in 2020! What a great honor!!!
And did we mention that in addition to representing Connecticut in the USSYP and other benefits and experiences, Mariam will receive a $10,000 college scholarship! Congratulations Mariam!
Fifteen Hamden High School DECA students traveled to Washington, DC to attend International DECA’s “The Ultimate Power Trip Conference” from 11/15 to 11/17. The students attended workshops, took a tour of The White House and the U.S. Capitol, meet with Representative Rosa DeLauro, attended the Georgetown vs. Penn basketball game, visited Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian Museum and the National Archives, and finally they took a night tour of Washington.
A huge shout-out to Spring Glen Elementary School's Aedan Flanagan, who recently won a top honor at the National Invention Convention!
After winning big at the state competition, Aeden qualified for the National competition, where he won the Environmental and Sustainability Industry Innovation Award for his invention of “SipBit," a reusable straw that can be worn as a bracelet. What a creative idea - and one that helps our environment! Congratulations Aeden, you are a wonderful ambassador for our town, and proof that great things are happening in Hamden!
