Juliette Markesano and Pavly Zaky, two sixth grade science students at Woodland Middle School, were recently named two of the top 10 winners in the PSEGLI I AM EM-Powered Program and Student Challenge for their work in creating a unique public service announcement about energy conservation.

“Both students created imaginative and persuasive public service announcement videos to encourage others to do their part in saving the environment,” Math and Science Chairperson Crystal Mello said. “We are proud of these students for their dedication to help improve our planet!”
