Recognition by John
Being a top 10 finalist has taken me many places that I never thought I would be. I was interviewed on my local news network WPSD. They asked me questions about the challenge and my project. It was very exciting and interesting to watch the broadcast from the studio.
In August I was recognized at the monthly school board meeting along with my science teacher Mr.Cornaby who recommended that students participate in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge. There were several people that spoke to me after the presentation that were interested in my project because they had health problems.
Another interview was with Kentucky Education Televation. They called me at school and asked a number of questions pertaining to my project for an upcoming program on health issues in Kentucky. And I got to watch it on TV the next week.
