Students in fourth grade through high school participate annually in our Science Fair. Our fair is judged by up to forty professionals from our community, representing local colleges and universities and fields of veterinary medicine, medicine, and technology. Our winners compete at the West Tennessee Regional Science & Engineering Fair. Each year our students are awarded certificates, medallions, gifts, and cash prizes. Two of our high school students have been awarded trips to the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair.
