To the Editor:
Last week I had the pleasure of being a judge at the Connecticut Invention Convention held at Gampel Pavilion at the University of Connecticut.
Of the over 600 participants, there were representatives from two Bristol schools, Green Hills and Chippens Hill.
We should be proud of these student inventors whose creativity and hard work produced winning inventions in preliminary regional contests to get to state final. The challenges they faced to get to the finals was testament to their ability to determine a reason for their invention, the thought that went into their ideas and then the follow through to produce a prototype to demonstrate the effectiveness they desired. We should all be proud of these students as representatives of our city.
