Valley View opens its doors to students in Salem

Valley View Middle School in Salem held its ribbon cutting ceremony on Aug. 17.

Jesse Shepherd of Spanish Fork High School won Grand Champion at the Central Utah Science and Engineering Fair.

After the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” orders were issued, BYU decided to continue to hold the science fair.

However, rather than doing all the judging in person like they had previously planned, BYU decided to have all the students submit images of their project concept board, as well as their research plans, abstracts, and answers to prompts from the judges.

This process took about a week, after which the judges made final decisions on awards.

Shepherd was selected the winner of the U.S. Metric Association Award for the extensive use of the Metric System, First Place Plant and Animal Science Winner, and CUSF Grand Champion.

Along with these awards, CUSF is presenting Shepherd with a $300 check.

“Because I won the Grand Champion, I will have the opportunity to travel to Anaheim for the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair,” Shepherd said.

This will be his second time attending the fair, along with 2,000 other students from 82 countries throughout the world.

Because of the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Regeneron and the Society for Science and the Public have decided to cancel the fair for this year. (Serve Daily submission.)
