As a component of Hopkinsville’s Healthy Kids and Earth Day event, a demonstration fair for middle school students offered an opportunity to share research in the areas of health and Earth sciences.

Sixth grader Becca Fitzpatrick placed third in Earth science with a project on ozone.  Lauren Shaner, an eighth grade student, received a third place award in health science with her project explaining COPD.  Seventh grader Vijdan Gill’s explanation of simple and complex carbohydrates won first place in health science and he was also named Grand Champion of the event.

Congratulations to all participants!!
