Cheryl Blackmer competes at State Science and Technology Fair

Cheryl Blackmer, Ballard sophomore,  competed in the State Science and Technology Fair on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at Iowa State University.  Cheryl completed against over 200 senior high projects, 32 of which were in the same Microbiology category as her project about detecting Powassan Virus.

Cheryl won the following events:
Grand Champion overall
1st Place in the Microbiology Category
Iowa Biotech Association Award Scholarship (only 5 scholarships awarded)

Cheryl was also one of four students to win a trip to the International Science Fair in Pittsburgh this May to compete against other state and regional winners.  We are proud of Cheryl’s accomplishments and wish her the best of luck at the International Science Fair!
