The Santa Monica High School SAGE (Students for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship) team was recognized, along with the school’s National Science Bowl team, during a ceremony at the high school May 7th.
The SAGE team, comprised of students Alberto DePablo, Jessie Chan, Tenzin Chodak, Sonam Chodak, Jasmine McClain, Monica Choo and Jane Beck, recently won this year’s state title.
It was the third consecutive year that the school has captured the title.
Santa Monica High School also honored the achievements of its National Science Bowl team, which took home the national title earlier this month.
During the SAGE competition, the team had 15 minutes for a multi-media presentation and five minutes for a question-and-answer session to convince the 70 judges that Santa Monica met the ten criteria better than any of the other 15 schools competing.
