“We seem to have better projects each year,” he said. “I also like seeing how far the students progress from each year to the next.

Perry Activities Director Tom Lipovac, Diane Hull, Dough and Pat Lathan, Dick Lundstrum, Kayla Rothmeyer, Scott Heldt and both Jim Caufield and Jeff Webster from ThePerryNews.com served as judges.

Judges asked each student to explain their project, discussing the goal in question, how it was approached and resolved and what items or tests were involved, along with any other questions they may have had. Projects were also judged on clarity, neatness and original work.

St. Patrick’s students from grades K-5 were able to spend time in the gym surveying the projects of their schoolmates as well.
