Kentucky American Water Presents 37th Annual Kentucky American Water Science Fair

Approximately 400 Fayette County public, private and home-school students in grades four through 12 will compete in the annual Kentucky American Water Science Fair coordinated by Fayette County Public Schools on Saturday, Feb. 12, at Frederick Douglass High School in Lexington. This year marks the 37th year for the event and Kentucky American Water is pleased to have served as the presenting sponsor of the fair for all 37 years.

Students participating in the event have either earned advancement to the district fair by receiving honors at their respective schools’ science fairs or otherwise earned recognition for their projects to advance to district competition. Project judging will begin in the school’s gymnasium at 9 a.m. and will conclude around noon. The close to 350 projects represent a variety of science disciplines, such as chemistry, plant sciences, engineering, and physics.
