WASHINGTON — Lake Linden-Hubbell High School’s eCYBERMISSION team is looking for help from the public at their upcoming national competition.

The team is up for the People’s Choice award at the web-based competition. Sponosred by the U.S. Army, the competition has students in sixth through ninth grades identify and solve problems in their community through science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) principles.
