Whiteface Middle School Named National Finalists

Striving for safety is making a group of Whiteface students winners.

Seventh graders Ben Donnell, Cullen Howe, J.R. Hernadnez, Zachary Wilbanks and their coach Laura Wilbanks have spent the week at Disney World in Florida.

The students were named one of eight finalists in the Christopher Columbus Science awards. They created a program to teach others about all-terrain vehicle safety. 

"We had a lot of friends we knew that were seriously injured and we wanted to help them," Donnell said.

If they win the$25,000 grand prize, the students want to create an ATV trail near Whiteface. For more information about the competition, click here.
