2013 Arizona Science & Engineering Fair

Each year since 2004, AHS and the CAP have awarded $400 to selected science projects in water, environmental and hydrologic sciences at the Arizona Science and Engineering Fair. I would like to thank DeAnne Rietz of SWCA and Derek McGregor of Freeport-McMoRan for their help in judging the projects. The projects were impressive and reflect a lot of hard work and dedication by the students. Each student will receive an award certificate and a cash award for selected projects also be awarded as indicated below.
