Coal Grove – Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students from across Lawrence County had an opportunity to take the knowledge learned in the classroom and apply it to science fair projects which were judged at the county’s annual science fair.

The science fair was held at Dawson-Bryant Middle School Friday.

Judged as having the best overall project was Sarah Waggoner of Chesapeake for her entry, "Earplugs Anyone?"

County School Superintendent and science fair judge Harold Shafer said the projects at the fair this year were, "very good."

The students worked hard not only preparing their project, but learning the scientific theory behind their project, he said.

Symmes Valley eighth grader and science fair competitor Ashley Taylor said "it takes a long time to work on your project."

Taylor said she had conducted the research for her project, "Does Caffeine Effect People’s Sleep?" She said the judges looked at the way she conducted her research and how she displayed her results.

"You really have to know your project," Taylor said.
