Fourth Annual West Coast Awards Banquet

West Coast Awards BanquetSoaring to new heights!  For the first time the California Science Center in Los Angeles hosted the West Coast Awards ceremony for the Carson Scholars Fund.  You are transported into space as soon as you enter the lobby when you eyes are drawn to look up to see two fighter jets soaring near the ceiling, under the huge skylights.
