Garrison, the smallest district in the regional science competition, received more awards than any other school in the middle school division.

The Garrison School in April announced the winners of its 2013 Science Fair, held during the week of March 18. Student scientists presented projects such as the seed preferences of birds (first grade), determining whether dogs are color blind (fourth grade), the impact of acid rain (sixth grade) and reaction times (eighth grade). Winners were selected from two age groups to represent the school at the Tri-County Fair.

First place winners in the K-4 biology category were Madison Smith and the team of Elizabeth Nelson and Fallon Barry. Winners in the K-4 physics category were Leeloo Boublil and Tim Liu, and the winners in the K-4 chemistry category were Phelan Waldron, Evelyn Higbee and Teresa Drotar.

First place winners among the 5-8 grades were Paul Walker and Eddie-Joe Barry in the biology category, Ted Northup and Anna Northup in the chemistry category, Emma Parks in the math category and Alexa Gagnon in the physics category.
