April, 2015 - Poudre's Science Olympiad teams placed 1st and 5th on Saturday, April 18th, 2015, at the state meet in Golden at the School of Mines. The meet included 30 High school teams from around the state including Fossil, FCHS, Rocky Mt., Cherry Creek, Cheyenne Mt, and many others. Poudre's #1 team will get to represent the state of Colorado at the National meet on May 15-16 at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. This team beat out Fossil Ridge by only one point. This is the closest finish ever!!!

If any of these students finishes first in the national finals, they will receive a full tuition scholarship to University of Nebraska! (In 2013, Gage Bock, Josh Knebel and Chris Pinella all got 1st in the national meet, so, yes, we have done it several times.)
