The students being celebrated included those who participated in Project Seed, those who earned scholarships from the exam given in May, and those who had participated in the study camp/competition for the US National Chemistry Olympiad. The evening started with light bites and conversation and then at 7:00 we adjourned to the small theatre for the Project Seed presentations and the awards.
