MSA is a talented group
It was a day to honor both school accomplishments and students' secret talents at the Awards Ceremony and Talent Show on June 3 Minnesota Math and Science Academy.
During the lengthy program, students were first recognized for their accomplishments in various activities and academics, followed by students showcasing their talents in a variety of ways.
During the Talent Show, MSA students performed their routines for a panel of judges who judged them on different categories. The acts during the Talent Show includes singing, dancing, the Seussical cast, instruments and even sword fighting.
This was the last day for MSA seniors, so it was a fun and entertaining way to close out their college careers.

Louis Armstrong Jazz Award: Paul Zimmerman
National School Choral Award: Sam Speckhrd, Heidi Trulsen
