“I am so very proud of our students. Their awards are a measure of the hard work and dedication they place in their work,” said Maria T. Perez, Blessed Trinity’s principal. 

At the regional level, there were over 5,000 projects from public and private schools and only 12 to 15 were chosen to compete in Lakeland.

“We are honored to be the only Catholic school chosen to participate at the state level. We are looking forward to states,” Perez said.

“I am greatly honored to be representing my school at the state competition,” said Daniela. “We may be a small school but we are just as powerful as any other.”
