Cameron Jeffrey, a seventh grader at Glenwood Jr. High is the first Boardman student to take home the National Prize for winning the KidWind Challenge.

For nearly two years, dozens of Glenwood Junior High students have been participating in a National Competition called "KidWind Challenge." It's a monthly online contest that puts design skills and trial and error to the ultimate test.

The students use wind turbine kits purchased through the Boardman Schools Fund for Educational Excellence teacher grant. These seventh graders design and build their own wind turbines to generate electricity. They record the data, and send their results to the online competition.
