Livingstone School's gym was packed for the annual Science Fair on Wednesday afternoon, January 27. Participants from grades 1-8 vied for awards and increased knowledge.  A dizzying variety of subject matter was on display, and the quality of the projects was very high.

Judges for the event included Marilyn Neville for Grades 1-2, Ron Drysdale for Grades 3-4 , Dale Patton for Grades 5 - 6, and Kari Grandoni for Grades 7-8.  Teachers Kathy Rast and Coady MacDonald presided over the awards ceremony.  There were multiple placings in the awards for several categories due to the impossibility of deciding between some of the projects.  That might not be how official awards always go, but it is the way science and reality works, particularly when dealing with efforts of high quality such as we saw at the event. Parents and grandparents were well represented in the crowd, and Municipal District of Pincher Creek Councillor Terry Yagos was there with his wife Bertha.
