Stacia Hill, a 2013 graduate of Missoula’s Big Sky High School, was selected to represent Montana as a delegate to the 2013 National Youth Science Camp in West Virginia from June 26 to July 20.

She joins 121 other top science students from across the nation and around the world for the honors science leadership program. For the next month, the delegates will be immersed in science lectures and hands-on directed studies led by scientists and professors from around the world. This year’s lecture topics include global warming, genomic medicine, radio astronomy and energy sustainability. Delegates will have the opportunity to dissect a human brain, discuss bioethics, explore the geologic evolution of the oceans and search through the DNA sequence of a genetic disease.

Participants also will have the opportunity to embark on outdoor adventures such as climbing, camping, caving and mountain biking.

The National Youth Science Camp, celebrating its 50th year since its inception in 1963, is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation.

Hill is planning to study biology at University of Montana in this fall.
