 LUBBOCK HIGH SCHOOL CAPTURES 1992 NATIONAL SCIENCE BOWL
 WASHINGTON, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- "If the sulfide ion is a base, it will ... " BUZZ! With the correct answer of "extract a hydrogen ion from water," Lubbock High School from Lubbock, Texas, captured the second annual National Science Bowl at the Department of Energy (DOE) in Washington, and defended the title they also won last year.
 Over two days and 11 rounds of competition, the Lubbock High School team bested a field of 29 other national finalists from all over the country, who qualified for the event by winning regional tournaments hosted by DOE national laboratories and other scientific facilities. Lubbock High School qualified for the national finals by winning the regional science bowl hosted by the Superconducting Super Collider Laboratory.
 "The future prosperity and security of our nation will rest on the shoulders of our youth. We must work together to provide our children -- our most valuable resource -- with the tools they will need to shape our destiny," said Secretary of Energy James D. Watkins. "The students who participated in DOE's second annual National Science Bowl have demonstrated their ability to excel in science and math. Each is truly a winner. Our congratulations to Lubbock High School on their second triumph."
 The championship prizes include a two-week trip to participate in the 34th London Youth Science Forum and link-up to the National Education Supercomputer at DOE's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, Calif., as well as the necessary hardware and training.
 Second in the National Science Bowl went to La Cueva High School from Albuquerque, N.M., who qualified for the finals by winning the regional science bowl hosted by the Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque. For their second place finish, the team will also go on the trip to the London Youth Science Forum and will receive the link-up to the National Education Supercomputer.
 Third in the event went to Sandia High School, also from Albuquerque. The Sandia team was eliminated in the semi-final by the La Cueva team, whose school is located a scant five miles from Sandia High School. Sandia qualified for the national finals by winning the regional science bowl hosted by Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, N.M. For their third place finish, they won a trip to a one-week "science camp" hosted by DOE and the Department of Interior (DOI), as well as the link-up to the National Education Supercomputer and the associated prizes.
 Newnan High School from Newnan, Ga., placed fourth in the National Science Bowl, also winning a trip to the science camp and link-up to the National Education Supercomputer and the associated prizes.
 The final score in this close competition was Lubbock High School 74, Sandia High School 70. All four of these teams will be present at a ceremony in their honor at the White House on Tuesday, April 28.
