(Lamar, Colorado; February 25, 2015)  On Wednesday, February 18, students from Alta Vista, Campo, Eads, Holly, Lamar Middle School, Lamar High School, Parkview, Plainview, Springfield, Walsh, and Wiley competed in the annual Southeast Colorado Regional Science Fair held at Lamar Community College.  The regional science fair typically hosts about 200 projects and this year was no exception with 207 projects from elementary through high school level.

The Southeast Regional Science Fair represents a culmination of student research started in the beginning of the school year.  Projects vary in their scientific interest but are all judged based on the depth of scientific method presented. Prizes are awarded to first, second, and third places within each category and an overall Grand and Reserve Champion are chosen from each of the elementary, junior high, and high school levels.

Parkview boasts both Grand and Reserve champions in the elementary with Madeline Montoya winning Grand Champion and Tavey Filbeck taking Reserve.  In the Junior High division, Saedee Davis of Holly was named Grand Champion and Kari Mosier of Lamar Middle School received Reserve Champion.  Nathan George of Walsh was awarded the overall Grand Champion for the high school division with Shannon Bland of Lamar High School taking Reserve.  Additionally, 24 projects will be sent to the State Science Fair in April.

In the past, nearly $1,000 has been awarded annually to these students.  This year almost $2,000 was awarded due to the addition of two LCC scholarships and awards from the Colorado Chapter of Soil and Water Conservation.

To everyone who helped make the Southeast Regional Science Fair a success, LCC is very grateful.  LCC would like to thank the sponsors and community for the support that makes this Science Fair possible and wish the best of luck to the 24 students continuing on to the State competition!
