Marieana Hill is going on the trip of a lifetime. Hill, a Bennett’s Mill Middle 8th grader, is one of just 10 students heading to study the rainforest in Colombia as winners of the Frank Ski 2022 Planet Green Science Trip Essay Contest.

Hill’s winning essay focused on deforestation in the Amazon, and, during the 8-day trip this June, students will conduct assessments and study effects of deforestation in the rainforest.

The trip is an initiative of the Frank Ski Kids Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to exposing kids to their future through science, technology, athletics, and the arts. The Foundation was started by Frank Ski, a longtime radio host, journalist, and philanthropist.
