Science fair winners

The diocesan Science Fair, held last month at Paul VI Catholic High School, drew seventh- and eighth-graders from 35 schools as well as a home school association.
First- and second-place winners in 13 categories received monetary awards thanks to the diocesan PTOs. Trophies were presented to the top three schools: St. Veronica in Chantilly won first place; Holy Spirit School in Annandale won second place; and St. Joseph School in Herndon won third place. The schools were ranked by taking the average scores of the participating schools who had at least five students attending.

First-place winners in their categories include:
Behavorial and Social Sciences: Natalia Lopez, St. Andrew the Apostle School in Clifton; Biochemistry: Elizabeth Thibodeau, St. Timothy School in Chantilly; Botany: Amanda Fernandez, St. Charles School in Arlington; Chemistry: Claire Taylor, St. Louis School in Alexandria; Computer Science: Konrad Siebor, St. Joseph School in Herndon; Earth and Space Science: Merrick Klunder, St. Bernadette School in Springfield; Engineering: Timothy Snyder, Holy Spirit School in Annandale; Environmental Sciences: Julianne Miranda, Holy Spirit School in Annandale; Mathematics: Braden Hoagland, Holy Spirit School in Annandale; Medicine and Health: Skylar Chumley, St. Veronica School in Chantilly; Microbiology: Emma Downes, All Saints School in Manassas; Physics: Nathan Skouby, St. Andrew the Apostle School in Clifton; Zoology: Victoria Sardegna, Corpus Christi School in Falls Church.
