Nine students from Seaway District High School took home a number of significant awards from the 2015 United Counties Science Fair, held at St. Lawrence High School in Cornwall on April 11.
Seaway teachers Melissa Ringler and Robin Gibbs, expressed pride in the students’ accomplishments, pointing out that the teens were up against talented competitors drawn from all the area high schools and intermediate schools.
“The competition was intense,” said Dana Domanko.
