Whiz Kid: Nate Werdmuller, 10

School: Soquel Elementary School

Accomplishment: Nate won the school spelling bee and qualified for the county science fair.

Key to Awesomeness: “I don’t think that I’m different than any other kids. I like to do my best and I really like school. The funny thing is, I didn’t really study for the spelling bee. But, I love books and read for about an hour every night. Science is always fun. My science fair project was about basketball. I love hoops and I want to play for Soquel High. I really hope that I can get into Cal Berkeley to play baseball or basketball and study to be a sports medic. If I could give any other kid in elementary school advice, it would be to work hard and have fun doing it.”
