WILMINGTON — Local fifth graders are celebrating a win at the state level.

New Horizons Elementary School fifth graders were awarded first place in N.C.’s First LEGO League Robotics Competition held in December. The project focused on helping solve food insecurity in North Carolina. The competition took place at N.C. A&T University in Greensboro. 

The group, named “Lego Masterz,” included Connor Boyd, Ethan Harrell, Breccan Hayes, Juliette Huth, Brooklyn Kneeland, Tesshin Oka, Grayson Sellers, Banks Sherwood and Merritt Wheeler. The team is led by STEM teacher Christina Satterfield. They were one of 60 teams competing at the state level.

“I’m so proud of our fifth graders for making it all the way to the Lego League State Championships,” Amanda Jacobs, the school’s director, said. “Not only is this their first year competing, but they went up against 8th graders. They worked so hard, collaborated and had offered unique insights for how to better their project. They set the bar extremely high and exceeded it!”

Before winning at the state level, the team was awarded the Core Values Award at the local qualifying level.
