As a member of the National Capital Chapter American Society of Safety Professionals (NCC ASSP) I was invited by the Potomac Section of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) to proudly serve as a judge for the Prince George’s Area Science Fair (PGASF) 71st Annual Science Fair, which was held on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at the Charles H. Flowers High School in Springdale, MD.
This year’s theme was “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S.T.E.M): Building a Sustainable Future.”
Over 350 grades 6-12 student projects were on display and judged from public schools in Calvert, Saint Mary’s, and Prince George’s counties, as well as from several Prince George’s County charter and private schools.
Although there were many creative and innovative projects, the NCC ASSP awarded the following certificates to those who have gone above and beyond in creating systems and testing the limits of science which may improve the safety and health of workers in all occupations in the future.
First Place: Amanda Johnson
Project: Safety Baseboard
Second Place: Madelyn Chisholm

Third Place: Tochukwu Opaibeogu
