“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.”

Emma Cate Jones of Cookeville’s Avery Trace Middle School took first place in the 4th through 6th grade intermediate division’s engineering category. Samuel Hauser of Parkview Elementary in Cookeville took second, and Scarlett Provot of Baxter’s Cornerstone Middle School took third.
