Isabella Negrete, an 8th grader at Baymonte has been chosen by the New York American Museum of Natural History, out of thousands of students across the US, as one of the top 36 finalists for the Young Naturalist Award. Along with an in depth scientific study, Isabella wrote a 2500 word essay on the local “Sea Star Wasting Disease”. In two weeks the top 12 out of 36 finalists will be announced. These finalists will attend an all expense paid trip to the museum in New York City for the awards ceremony. Congratulations Isabella!
