 Four Marvin Ridge High School students took first- and second-place awards recently in the regional Intel Science and Engineering Fair, held at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. More than 200 elementary, middle and high school students attended the fair; all hoping to win the chance to compete again on a state and national level. Three main judges and several “special awards” judges watched as students presented their findings concerning various topics of original research. Students had to develop a paper about that research and a trifold poster that accompanied the presentation.

Bob Dill from Charles G. Monett III and Associates awarded Douglass with a certificate and check for classroom supplies. Pictured, at left, Bob Dill from Charles G.
