MORROW — Two Clayton County students have been recognized for their water-related science fair projects.
Clayton County Water Authority spokeswoman Suzanne Brown said Alecia Taylor, a student at Unidos Dual Language Charter School, and Kamren Adams, a student at Edmonds Elementary School were singled out for their projects. Taylor won for her project, “Water Purification,” while Adams won for “Tap Water vs Waste Water.”
“For the past 18 years, CCWA has provided judges to the Clayton County Regional Science & Engineering Fair held every February,” said Brown. “From that competition, CCWA staff, serving as judges, selects two outstanding projects that focus on water-related issues.”
The students were given the Authority’s Water Environment Research Award trophy and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble during the board’s May meeting.
“We are always pleased to see outstanding water-related projects and meet the students who put so much time into these projects,” says Marie Barber, chairperson of the CCWA Board of Directors. “We hope they will continue to have an interest in science, and in particular, water-related issues.”
