Well, some young scientists from different schools were at the Meadowbrook Mall on Saturday, showing off their skills at the annual Harrison County Science Fair.

Elementary, middle, and high school students came together to compete.  With over 99 projects, this year's fair was a success. 

First place winners took home a trophy, while second and third place took home ribbons. 

This year, the school system stressed getting the community involved.  So, 24 people from local businesses and organizations volunteered to be judges.

One of those judges said that all of the students were winners in their own right.

"To do a project like this brings logic to the kids' minds. You have to step back and really think about what you're doing, why are you doing it, and then be able to present it to somebody. All those skills are really important in life. It's not just about science. It's about preparing them for the next step in their education," said Dr. Mark Povroznik, a fair judge who works at United Hospital Center.

All the winners at Saturday's Fair had already won at their schools.
