— The Omak School District’s Xtreme Challenge program is one of five state finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow grant contest.

Site Manager Wendy Hensarling and Project Director Racie McKee submitted the project proposal.

“Out of the more than 2,300 applications, yours was chosen as one of the five best in your state,” Samsung wrote in an email to the Xtreme Challenge program.
