The Billings Petroleum section recently provided outstanding support to the Big Sky Regional Science Bowl, a component of the US Department of Energy National Science Bowl program. The Bowl was held February 3-4, 2012, in Billings, Montana, and attracted a total of 210 students. The section donated five lock-out buzzer systems to use for future competitions, a gift that cost $2,875. This generous gesture will benefit the Montana youth for years to come. Way to go, Billings Petroleum Section!
