BALDWIN, Kan. (AP) -- Baldwin High School is celebrating its second national title in an aerospace technology competition.

A team from the northwest Kansas school on Saturday won the national finals of the Real World Design Challenge in Washington D.C. The competition is sponsored by federal agencies, private aerospace companies and governments of participating states.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/I6uUQH ) teams in the competition were required to digitally design tail sections and wings for a light-aviation aircraft. Teams then had to demonstrate their designs could fly from Kitty Hawk, N.C., to Dayton, Ohio.

Pam Davis is team coach. Baldwin competed in the final round against teams from Nevada and Pennsylvania.

The three teams made the finals after competing Saturday morning with 28 other teams. Baldwin also won the national championship in 2010.
