Fairfield 8th graders excel at science fair


Fairfield School Board President Dr. Rindy Matthews, right, congratulates the Fairfield eighth grade state science fair winners at the board meeting May 24. From left, the team of Saylor Priest and Ailean Duffie received a superior with its project “Juglone Effects,” which was a study of a natural herbicide produced by walnut trees. In addition, it won two special awards: first place from Ohio Soybean Bioscience, which carried a $1,000 cash prize; and first place in Interdisciplinary Research, sponsored by Sigma Xi for which they received $100 each, a plaque and an invitation to the fraternity’s annual banquet. The other team, Abby Davis and Mia Keeton, won an excellent rating with their project “Dog Saliva Antibodies.” They studied whether the size of a dog contributes to its level of antibodies. Both teams won a superior in the district fair earlier to qualify for the state science fair in Columbus.
