SWOSU receives grant
A Southwestern Oklahoma State University program recently received a $15,000 grant for its weeklong math and science camp for girls.
Tech Trek is a national program that is designed to boost confidence in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This year is the first for the program to expand outside of California, and SWOSU is one of five test sites.
The grant is from the Oklahoma Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research. The camp is a partnership with the Weatherford branch of the American Association of University Women.

A sophomore from Harding Fine Arts Academy has been selected as the winner of the Oklahoma ArtScience Prize.

The state competition is done in partnership with Creative Oklahoma. As the winner of the Oklahoma ArtScience Prize, Hollins will represent Oklahoma at the ArtScience Lab in Paris.
