Judges came from Vallero, Clorox and a private Electrical Engineer to judge the event. The 8 judges worked all morning to choose the top projects which are now eligible to go on to the California State competition in April held in Los Angeles.

On Tuesday January 14, ten members of the Golden West staff attended a Solution Coach® training. The ten new solution coaches will be available to coordinate Solution Teams to help stop bullying on campus. Solution Teams are convened when a staff member learns that a student has been bullied. The Solution Team consists of the bullyer and any allies of the bullyer as well as four or five students who are known to staff to make consistently good choices. Each member of the Solution Team commits to do one thing to help the target. Individuals report success worth bragging about as they describe the effect this strategy has had on their schools.
