The Colorado Science and Engineering Fair was held at the Lory Student Center of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, April 11-13, 2002. Projects were submitted by the junior and senior high students from across Colorado who had won competitions at a local level. The RMAG grants awards to exceptional projects in the earth sciences, and Susan Wager and Richard Louden represented the RMAG as Special Awards Judges. The RMAG awarded Certificates of Recognition and a cash award of $200.

The Junior Division winner this year was a team project submitted by Danika Friedley and Whitney Howard, both of Bayfield, Colorado for their project, entitled “Erosion and the Formation of Alluvial Fans.” The Senior Division winners were Katherine L. Hermann of Louisville, Colorado, for her project “Predicting Water Quality with Landscape Metrics” and Stephen Canham of Greenwood Village, Colorado, for his project “Prevention of Soil Salinization from a Rising Water Table.”

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