Jeanine Sharp, an eighth-grade student at Lanesville Junior-Senior High School, presents her agriscience fair project, about beef byproducts, to judges Dec. 10. Each eighth-grade student participated with Magy Garmon the first-place winner. Second-place overall winner was Brooklyn Albers. Individual categories’ top scorers were Garmon (animal science), Albers (plant science), Cade Carter (natural resources), Emma DeSpain (food science) and Keagan Toole (mechanics). Judges were Lanesville science teacher Daniel Cox, Lanesville agriculture teacher Brianne Kinney, Lanesville guidance counselor Robin Morgan, retired Lanesville science teacher Jeff Hammond and retired North Harrison science teacher Janice Sauerheber. “Overall, the students did a wonderful job on this project,” said Kinney. “This was the first time that our students had done an agriscience fair … a collaboration between the eighth-grade science and agriculture classes … The students worked for several weeks to research and design the projects that they presented. … I think that having experiences like this in school help the students develop confidence and learn to take pride in their work.”
