ACT-SO San Diego had an amazing 2021 competition season. Our Students “showed up and showed out”, presenting numerous creative and skilled projects.  We would like to offer a special thanks to our Moderators, Mentors and Judges, without you all, this season wouldn’t have been possible.  This season we enrolled 17 students in our program who competed in 16 competitions, a record for ACT- SO San Diego.  Nearly $10,000 in scholarship money was won, including five Gold winners. 

The ACT-SO Committee is proud of the work we were able to complete, our committee membership is small but mighty, totaling 4 members. We are actively seeking new Committee Members, Volunteers and Financial Sponsors. With the assistance of Volunteers and Sponsors we will be able to serve even more Students for the 2022 season.
