On Saturday, February 27th, Wentzville Holt High School hosted the Missouri Tri-County Science Fair (Honors Division). Our intrepid science fairy (is it OK to call you that, Sheryl Loux?) has reported the following projects/scientists as winners in the chemistry-themed category.
- First Place: Yushin Lee and Sydney Thomas, Grade 12, Fort Zumwalt North High School, O’Fallon, MO: The Effects of 3,4-Dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde on the Amyloid Formation of α-Synuclein.

We hope we speak for the Section when we say “Congratulations” to the winners and all the competitors who stretched themselves to compete.
