Every student-athlete has a different experience when it comes to high school sports. But the majority of current athletes are following the same trend: participating in travel or club sports in their off-seasons.

Early April, I was walking between classes when my phone rang: I had been invited to the White House! I was going to exhibit my scientific work for the White House Science Fair. After school, I celebrated the news with my friend, Christine Yoo. I had been team leader of a research project with Christine on developing a novel, sustainable device that can simultaneously produce clean energy and remove oil spill pollution. For our work, we won the $100,000 grand prize in the Siemens Competition for Math, Science, and Technology and other accolades, and we were invited to the White House Science Fair to exhibit our efforts to represent the Siemens Foundation and Discovery. We were beyond excited!

Those states where it is not native have the Tradescantia occidentalis which is called prairie spiderwort.
