WLU to Continue Regional Science Fair Thanks To Large Gift


 West Liberty University will continue its 50-year tradition of hosting the regional science fair, thanks to a donation Monday from Southwestern Energy.

The Regional Science Fair has helped generations of kids to get in touch with their science and math side for half a century, and in these times of budget cuts, it hasn’t been easy to continue it.

Now with $25,000 donation from Southwestern Energy, West Liberty can keep rewarding kids for thinking outside the box.

In fact, the professor  who now runs the science fair, got inspired as a contestant in 7th grade.

The next Science Fair is set for February 27th. It’s open to kids, grades 6 thru 12, and it will be held in the Campbell Hall of Health Sciences. It’s open to students from throughout the Northern Panhandle.
