LearnStorm Grand Finale Recognizes Summit Student Achievement

After months of heated competition, Khan Academy's LearnStorm challenge finally came to a close. During the final event on Google's campus, students from Summit Prep, Tahoma, and Denali were split into teams to test the skills they have been developing throughout the competition.

Over 76,000 students participated in LearnStorm, and more than 50% of Bay Area schools took part. Out of all these competitors, Erin from Summit Prep took 1st place among all juniors in the competition! Jocelyn and Emma from Summit Prep also took 3rd and 2nd place, respectively, among all seniors in the competition. Eleven other representatives from Summit Prep, Denali, and Tahoma also did a great job at representing Summit throughout the day! 

Kai, from Summit Denali, was excited to take part in the day's events and said it was, "...an awesome experience to be at the first ever Khan Academy Learnstorm event."

Summit's high participation rate in LearnStorm earned a special shout-out from Sal Khan at the closing ceremony. Other Summit schools have received similar recognition for their achievements throughout the competition, including a technology grant awarded to K2, and Denali claiming the Monthly Hustle Cup in March. Congratulations to all LearnStorm participants, including their teachers and mentors who supported their students every step of the way!
