A community science fair will be held Saturday, Feb. 24, at Holmes Chapel Prebyterian Church at Monticello. The event is for students in K-12 grades and the deadline to register is Friday, Dec. 29.

“It’s our goal to provide an opportunity for a relevant academic competition that students may not otherwise be invited to experience,” according to a news release.

Cash prizes will also be awarded. The application for participating in the community science fair is available now.

Interested students may contact NAACP Act-So Chairperson Sheena Garrard at sheenagarrard@gmail.com or 870-723-1703.
