“I was very pleased with the level of exhibits on display during this year’s fair,” said Peter Li, director of the fair and professor of geography at TTU. “It is always exciting to see the discoveries that our students make in their research. I congratulate all of this year’s participants, award winners, their families and teachers.”

In the seventh through ninth grade junior division’s physical science category, Hannah Hajdik, Hannah Crawford and Sarah Phillips of Cookeville High School won first place. Chris Dean, also from Cookeville High, won second and Avery Trace Middle School student Brianna Hellman won third.
