2020 2021 Race Season – Outstanding Student

This year, Electrathon of Tampa Bay/Florida had a difficult time recognizing just one Outstanding Student for the 2020-2021, STEM Electrathon Race Season.

Electrathon of Tampa Bay/Florida believes that every student that participated in our events this race season is an outstanding student. Students this year faced different ways/types of learning, their friends may have been at home learning rather than in the classroom, there were health and safety protocols along with safe distancing requirements. These students excelled through each task placed before them.

The 2020-2021 Outstanding Student joined their team, impressed their sponsors by jumping in to support the team, exhibited a willing to help attitude, showed respect and professionalism (most of the time as we all have our moments).

This year Electrathon of Tampa Bay/Florida Outstanding Student for 2020-2021 STEM Electrathon Race Season is Plant City High Schools, Caden Mittan
