Mason County Schools held the County Science Fair December 1, 2022 at the Mason County Board of Education Board Room. All of our schools were represented with 73 projects and 110 students. 

We would like to thank our 24 community judges who volunteered their time to help judge these projects. 

Congratulations to all the students who participated and represented their schools with excellent projects.

All our First-Place winners will move on to the Regional Science Fair that will be held at the Mason County Board of Education on March 2nd, 2023. The first place winners will also be recognized at the December 13, 2022 Board Meeting at 6:00 PM.
