Franklin County held its first ever Forgotten Coast Regional Science and Engineering Fair on Feb. 6 at the Franklin County School Multipurpose Building.

All Franklin County middle and high school students who placed first or second in their school fair categories were invited to attend. Franklin County School and ABC Charter School students competed for chances to attend the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair April 8-10 in Lakeland.

The regional fair director, Sharon Solomon, said she was thrilled to see the regional fair through to completion. She has been trying to relocate the regional fair to Franklin County for 30 years. Until this year, Solomon said Franklin County had to travel to Quincy to participate in the West Bend Regional Fair, a fuel expense and major inconvenience for students and parents.

The following is a list of the overall winners that were eligible to go to the Florida State Science and Engineering

ABC School seventh grader Andrew Nguyen, , "Fans and Airflow: Cool Computer”

Franklin County seventh grader Duncan Whaley "Is there lead in the soil?”

ABC School seventh graders Hailey Gay and Bryce Kent, "Play Ball”
