Ms. Samantha Masco and Ms. Mandy Jadick are proud to announce the following results from the 2023 PJAS State Competition. Of the twenty-one students competing, Carbondale Area finished with seven 1st Place awards. Many presenters did their presentations without the aid of their slide deck due to a campus wide computer issue, and still our students persisted to a 1st Place Award.

Students who received 1st Place Awards are the following: Gabriella Granville, Alexandria Rosar, Olivia Lawler, Alexander Mackey, William Murphy, Kylie Kelly, and Molly Kelly. Kylie Kelly was also awarded a Pennsylvania Science Talent Search Scholarship in the amount of $8000 to Penn State University for her future studies.
