The Colorado Science and Engineering Fair was held at the Lory Student Center of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado April 8-10, 2004. Regional junior and senior high school winners from across the state participate in this event. The RMAG grants awards to exceptional projects in the earth sciences. Susan Wager, Richard Louden, and Jim Brothers represented the RMAG as Special Awards Judges. The RMAG awarded Certificates of Recognition and a cash award of $200 to each of the winners.

Junior Division winners this year were Elizabeth Garcia of Monte Vista, Colorado, for her project entitled Rock-n-Roll – a study of volcanic rocks in the Saguache area, Cole Kembel of Brush, Colorado, for his project, Using the GPS to Calculate the Circumference of the Earth, and Daniel Neligh of Lakewood, Colorado, for his project entitled Erosional Investigations. The Senior Division winner was Rachel Dolye of Monte Vista, Colorado, for her project The Effect of Precipitation and Stream Flow on Metal Concentrations in the Rivers of Colorado. Elizabeth Garcia also received an award from the RMAG in 2003.

There were many fine projects and interviewing the all of the participants was very enjoyable. Congratulations to the all participants of this year’s Colorado Science and Engineering Fair.
