Eighth grader Tess Holdaway was a finalist for the nation-wide FutureCreatures contest held by Future Engineers. She was one of more than 1,000 entrants for her age group and was named to the top four for grades 6-12.
The contest required entrants to select an animal that is currently living in a tropical rainforest and predict how it may look in the future due to long-term effects of climate change. Entrants were required to submit at least two illustrations and an essay. Holdaway's topic was Serrasalmus Pulmonis.
