The “North Area Counties of Kentucky Exposition of Science” was held on March 21, 2009, and the list of winners is now posted.
To put it mildly, the winners’ list is dominated by the Northern Kentucky parochial schools. In fact, a Catholic school won the school-level award for both junior (grade 5 to grade 8) and high school levels of the competition.
This actually is a little surprising, because some recent studies have claimed that there are no advantages for private schools.
Anyway, that urban legend has been shot full of holes by this science fair, which was open to all students in the 30 county area of Northern Kentucky.
