2019 District Science Fair rewards exemplary projects

More than 500 Fayette County public, private, and home-school students competed Feb. 2 in the 2019 Kentucky American Water Science Fair, coordinated by Fayette County Public Schools. Their “Discover”-themed projects represented a variety of science disciplines, and dozens took home district-level awards. 

“We are pleased to celebrate our 35th year of presenting the science fair and honoring these bright young minds and exciting achievements,” said Kentucky American Water President Nick Rowe. “Today’s science fair participants will be tomorrow’s engineers, doctors, teachers, water providers and difference makers, and we are pleased to support them on their journey.” 

Mayor Linda Gorton and LFUCG leaders will congratulate the winners at their Feb. 21 council meeting. These students will also advance to the Central Kentucky Regional Science and Engineering Fair, set for March 2 at host Paul Laurence Dunbar High School.
