Jackson Students Win Free Trip to Facebook

The middle school team was challenged to solve a social media problem.

Jackson Middle School sent five teams of students to Los Alamos National Labs to compete in the finals of the yearlong Supercomputing Challenge.

One of these teams, an all girls team, received the Facebook Award for studying to solve a social problem. Their project, "Don't Speak Bullying," involved having sixth, seventh and eighth graders and teachers at three middle schools complete a survey that they then pulled data from.

The award for this work is an all-expenses paid week on Facebook grounds with other students studying the same topic for one week, to work together and learn some of the things Facebook is doing to help.

These students are Isabella Montoya, Heidi Rolson and Miranda Gomez Nelson. Their teacher is Karen Glennon.
