This was our second year competing in the Community Problem Solving competition for FPS.  With our focus on awareness this year, it's only appropriate for us to go present to an audience there, whether we place or not.  We spent the last few weeks preparing our presentation and materials, and our efforts really paid off when S.T.O.P. placed 1st at California State Bowl!  We are all so happy we did so well!  Now our team is mobilizing for the International Conference on June 6th, reaching out to more organizations and the like.  We're so excited to meet everyone else there and continue to spread the word about the burrowing owl!
 
 
CATALYST was just published and we were so surprised and happy that we were one of the articles selected to be published in it!  Our article is now circling around the community, and around the nation!  We hope that we will educate many people about the burrowing owl this way!

The journal has a readership of about 500.  Our article was also selected to compete at the national level in a publishing competition by CATALYST, which will further increase our awareness level!  We are so excited to see the sort of feedback our article will bring, and hopefully people from all over the nation will understand the importance of the burrowing owl!
