The first ever National Challenge event was a huge success! Held at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, eighth-grader Maggie Leake of Verona, IL became CEF’s first ever National You Be The Chemist Challenge® Champion. Maggie beat five other talented students to take home the top prize. Today, Maggie is finishing a dual degree in chemistry and mathematics at the Mississippi University for Women, and continues to promote the Challenge program wherever she goes!
