(SHELTON, WA) -- Local students received trophies and cash awards from Mason PUD 3 for their electricity-related projects at Skookum Rotary's March 30, 2019 Mason County Science Fair.

  1. The $50 first place award went to Hunter Middleton (Sixth Grade, Pioneer) for his “Capacitive Touch Screen Tech Project.” He set out to answer if there is a plastic that can be used instead of glass on devices.

  1. The $35 second place award went to Lamberto Ozuna Montano (Fifth, Evergreen Elementary) for his project titled “Electric Measures.” He experimented with three electric devices (Nintendo Switch, Nintendo DS, and iPhone 5c) to see which one used the most electricity.

  1. The $25 third place award went to the team project of Holmes Waltermire and Jaydon Blackburn Malaki Matthew (Eighth Grade, Pioneer) for their experiment called “Fireworks Ignition Mechanism.” They rewired a cast-off video game joystick into an ignitor switch that could set off fireworks at a safe distance.

PUD 3’s education committee is delighted to reward outstanding students in Mason County who are committed to learning about the important role that electricity plays in our daily lives. The PUD is especially pleased that Skookum Rotary has taken a leadership role in encouraging local scholars in their scientific pursuits.
