Congratulations to Ellie Laudenslayer for winning the State Trig-Star Competition for the National Society of Professional Surveyors!
A Trig-Star is a mathematics student who has demonstrated in competition that they are the most skilled among classmates in the practical application of trignometry. The competition is a timed exercise which is the solving of a trigonometry problem that incorporates the use of right triangle formulas, circle formulas, the law of sines, and the law of cosines. The contest helps promote careers in surveying and mapping to high school students. For more information on the competition, please click here.
Ellie wins $600 and a chance to compete in the National Competition for $2,000. The award is sponsored by the National Society of Professional Surveyors and co-sponsored locally by the Kentucky Department of Highways.
Good luck at the next level, Ellie!
