The H.D. Jacobs High School Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering Team sent four students to the state WYSE competition.
Leading up to the state competition, the WYSE Team finished in first place at a regional competition on Feb. 15 at Elgin Community College.
During the competition each student takes college-level tests in two of six categories. Awards are given to first, second and third places for individual scores.
Ten of the 14 team members received medals in biology, chemistry, computer science, English and physics in Elgin. The team in total received 17 medals, the most in school history, the school said in a news release.
In March, the team finished in third place at the sectional competition at Northern Illinois University, with four students, Chad Franzen, Justin Richman, Rachel Rim and Robert Thomas, advancing to state on April 8 at the University of Illinois in Champaign.
At state, Franzen and Rim finished fifth in English, Richman finished seventh in physics, and Thomas finished fifth in chemistry, the school said.
The overdue paper notice will be replaced by an email or phone notification effective March 18 at the Algonquin Area Public Library District.
By using the library’s automated phone notification system to contact cardholders when they have items overdue will result in cost savings to the community and provide library users with a much more timely notice, according to a news release from the library district.
Notice messages will not contain any item information; they simply will inform cardholders that they have overdue material. Those receiving email notifications will see no change. Cardholders who do not wish to receive phone notices must provide an email address.
Those interested in signing up for email notifications can call the library at 847-458-6060, ext. 4, or visit www.aapld.org, click on the About Us tab, select Library Info and follow the instructions via the E-mail Notification link.
