NHS Students Earn Top Honors at East Panhandle Science Fair

The 37th Annual Robert Sheffield East Panhandle Regional Science and Engineering Fair Awards Ceremony was held recently to recognize the best science, technology, engineering and mathematics projects from Okaloosa and Walton counties.

Two Niceville High School students, Sarah Craig and Brayton Miles, were selected as Grand Prize winners and will represent Florida at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, California, May 10 – 18, 2014.  The Intel ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grade 9-12, providing an annual forum for more than 1,500 high school students from 70 countries, regions, and territories to display their independent research.

Six NHS students were selected to represent the East Panhandle at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair in Lakeland, Florida, April 8 – 11, 2014.  The Florida State Science and Engineering Fair is the largest academic competition in the state of Florida.  Each year more than 900 aspiring scientists in grades 6 – 12 participate as Finalists from the 37 affiliated Regional Science and Engineering Fairs (representing all 67 counties in Florida).
