2021 Annual Washington County Science Fair Winners Announced
Two-hundred and nine young scientists, sixth through twelfth grade, presented research projects during the annual Washington County Science Fair hosted at Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) in Sandersville, Thursday, December 2 and Friday, December 3.
Participating schools included Washington County High School, T.J. Elder Middle School, and Brentwood.
“Each year I am so impressed with the projects and so proud of the students in the school systems in Washington County,” shared Kathy Aaron, science fair organizer and Executive Director of Institutional Advancement at OFTC.
Thirty-two individuals volunteered to serve as judges for the science fair with backgrounds in the medical, engineering, chemical, mathematics, biology, education, psychology, botanical, and military fields. “The OFTC Foundation would like to thank each judge who volunteered their knowledge and time to make this event so successful,” she added.
The following businesses sponsored the science fair through the OFTC Foundation: Thiele Kaolin Company, Imerys, Howard Sheppard Inc., Bulk Chemical, Burgess Pigment, Queensborough National Bank, Washington EMC, Moye’s Insurance, Geo. D. Warthen Bank, and The OFTC Foundation.
“Our success would not be possible without these sponsors and we’re thankful for their generosity and continued support of this great community project each year,” Aaron said.
The overall winners are encouraged to participate at the regional science fair held at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville. The OFTC Foundation sponsors each one by paying their regional science fair entry fees. “We wish these students the best of luck at the next level,” Aaron said.
