Unfortunately and disappointingly, the science fair here is not a well run event, in my esteemed opinion. I could vent my true feelings, but I've already done that in a letter to the district superintendent. Suffice it to say that the event had direly under-qualified judges so the end result was that Cannon placed 3rd for the 6th grade, losing to a girl who tested magnets on radish seeds (really???). Now third place is not bad, but we knew Cannon's project was tops (and that's not just a proud momma talking!) There was also a glaring mistake which marred his victory - namely, he's in the 7th grade, not the 6th!!! The silly director of the fair took it upon herself to change his category. I am not her biggest fan and that's all I have to say about that.
Anyways, we know that Cannon had an award winning project and we're so proud of him for the work he did!
