“Thank you so much for selecting me for this award and for your contribution to my college fund!  I decided to enter in the science fair last spring during the pandemic because I wanted something to do over the summer and I’ve always been interested in science.  Because of this experiment, this past year has been fun and challenging.  I’ve learned how to approach a science experiment from designing to analysis and poster-making.  Thank you for encouraging the beginning of my science career by giving me this award!”
