The science department would like to thank everyone for making this event a success. Thanks to all the students who participated and to all the parents who showed their support. After all the hard work these students put into their science inquiry projects it was wonderful for them to have a chance to showcase their work. We would also like to thank all of the judges who came out and volunteered their time and knowledge. Without them the fair would not be possible.

In addition to the District Fair at The University of Akron, there are also two prestigious fairs that students from our school have been selected to attend. The first is The Northeast Ohio Science and Engineering Fair held at Cleveland State during the week of March 11. Judging will take place on Tuesday, March 12th and an awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, March 14.

The following eight students will be participating: Keeyanna Curley, Isabelle Davis, CHarles Gegick, Kaitlin Kemp, Tingzhang “August” Li, Bailee McDaniel, Brennan Moll, and Mason Stams.

Congratulations to all and good luck in the upcoming competitions!
