CORNWALL – Three students have brought home bronze medals from the Canada Wide Science Fair in Montreal.

Audrey Millette and Alexa Villeneuve won in the junior division for their project on health and food through the testing various freezer packs and resulting food spoilage.

Gabriel Valin won in the intermediate division for his project on “a green alternative” – a way of using invasive plants to produce ethanol.

The students, from L’Heritage High School, each received a $1,000 scholarship to Western University.

Emytt Fetterly and Maclean Machan from Seaway District High School also participated as part of the delegation from SD&G.

United Counties Science Fair chairman Jason Marshall is hopeful these results will inspire other young in SD&G to engage in science due to opportunities available at the regional and national level.

The science fair was held May 15-20, 2016.
