This year, we had over 900 students representing 41 high schools throughout Los Angeles County take the Local ACS Exam in March. Arcadia High School finished first overall while North Hollywood High School finished first for first year students. The winners of the local exam were invited to participate in the national exam on April 16th at California State University, Dominguez Hills for a chance to be part of the International Olympiad in July in Tiblisi, Georgia. These students, as well as the top performers and teachers from each school of 10 or more participants, will be honored at our annual Educational Awards Banquet. As an additional treat, Prof. Harry Gray from Caltech will be there to talk to the students and parents. Please see page 4 for Prof. Gray’s biography,
