Each year, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy sends a few people to view projects that kids around the county have worked on for the Loudoun County Science Fair and pick the top 3 projects as our award winners.
We see this as a way to encourage your young people in exploring nature and learning about the interelationships that exist in our world.
This year was no exception. Our judges had a great time as always learning about all the different projects and they selected three winners. They are:
Molly Booth-Observing the Effect of Human Disturbance on Low Trophic Level Biodiversity
Ashley Lohr-Sugar Quality of Zinnia elegans as a Coevolution Factor in Color Selection by Lepidopterans
Sean O’Neil-the Effect of Organic Substances on Stink Bugs
We will recognize these students at our Annual Meeting in June, where they will have their projects on display and we will present them with their award checks.
