Fort Jennings sent six students to the Regional Science Fair. Each student was asked to give a short presentation to a pair of judges that included science teachers, professors, college students, and industry experts. Judging for Special Awards was also done by another set of judges throughout the morning.
Marissa Krietemeyer received an excellent rating. Kyle Maag received a superior with a second-place ranking in the energy category. Griffin Morman received a superior with a second-place ranking in plants. Erin Eickholt received a superior with a first-place ranking in Environmental Science. Troy Ricker received a superior with a second-place ranking in Animal Science and a first-place special award from the Navy and Marines. Ryan Hoersten received a superior with a first-place ranking in Chemistry.
Hoersten, Ricker and Eickholt were also chosen for super judging as three of the top 12 projects of the entire fair for the junior high. They were asked to give no more than a five minute synopsis of their project to a panel of four judges. They could not use their poster display for this round of judging.
Hoersten was chosen as one of the top four projects after the Super Judging and now qualifies for a chance to have his project chosen for the National fair in Washington, D.C.
