Wellington Students Win Science Awards

The Wildcats of Wellington Elementary School had a lot to celebrate last week when the Palm Beach County School District wrapped up its annual science and math fair.

Students and staff were honored to find that six of the school’s projects were selected for awards. Jack Robertson, Hannah Dimaiwat and Emily Oswald took first place in their respective grade levels, while Matthew Robinson received third place with an interesting project on popcorn kernels.

In the primary division, Jennifer Disanti’s class won a first-place ribbon, while Stacey Oswald’s and Marie Sinram’s classes each received an honorable mention.

Wellington Elementary School had a total of 25 projects entered in the county science fair, which is held annually at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The projects selected to represent the school were judged by the school’s science committee and several teachers.

These projects were evaluated and chosen out of several hundred projects. School officials are proud of all the participating students, including those with top honors.
