Teachers from around the Washington D.C. area applied with teams of students to blog about science on iGEN. The teams selected as the winning team of the contest are The Mighty Mustangs, 7th and 8th graders from Scott Durbin’s science classes and students from Donna O’Kieff’s journalism class at the Earle B. Wood Middle School in Rockville, MD.

The Mighty Mustangs will receive a $1000 grant for STEM-based learning materials for their school, a $500 grant for transportation to the show, AND a day with iGen’s seasoned UBM Electronics reporters at the show doing video and audio/radio interviewing and blogging! They will also have t-shirts, press badges, and digital cameras to get their reporting done in style!

We look forward to having the iGen Cub Reporter Contest Winning Teams on site at the Festival and can’t wait to see the amazing work that they will create! Their stories will be posted directly to iGen’s website. Congratulations to both winning teams!
