06 - 13 - 2013 Future Problem Solvers from MCHS bring home trophy
LEWISTOWN - Four Mifflin County youth have added one more trophy to their collection. The Future Problem Solving team of Lucy Crawford, Jensen Graham, Paige Stewart and Grace Wagner recently earned fifth place at the FPS 2013 International Conference Program held June 6 to 9 at the University of Indiana in Bloomington, Ind. The girls said their win ranks them among participants in 13 countries, 40 states and only 3 percent of FPS students worldwide. This year, they studied the global status of women, spending several weeks researching social, political, health, economic and technical issues facing women worldwide. The first half of the competition asked teams to record their problem and solution in writing. After that, they presented their findings in the form of a skit. In previous years, Crawford, Graham, Stewart and Wagner placed second and third in the middle division. As they advance into their junior year of high school, the girls say they plan to remain members of FPS.
