And the winner is ...
North Hollywood High took first place in the 2008 L.A. Department of Water and Power Science Bowl regional competition. It was the school's 10th regional title for knowledge in science, math and technology.
That means the team goes to the National Science Bowl in May in Washington, D.C.
Each of the five team members -- Angela She, Emily Ye, Brian Kim, Ryan Thorngren and Murtaza Saifee -- receives a medallion and a $1,000 scholarship from Hitachi Corp. Their coach is Altair Maine.
The L.A. DWP Science Bowl is an official, regional qualifying tournament of the U.S. Department of Energy's National Science Bowl. The Department of Energy started the competition in 1991, and more than 100,000 students have participated.
