Three Saint Bridget's eighth graders are winners of this year's AAUW Women in Math and Science Essay Contest.
Pictured are Elsie Bartlett, Hazel Blanco and Robbie Lichman.
Students are asked to do research on a woman in a STEM field and then write an essay on her.
A panel of educators judges the essays using written criteria. Winners receive a certificate and $50.
