Eight Calhoun students competed at the West Virginia's Social Studies Fair and six came home with medals.
Pleasant Hill student Maddox Siwicki won 1st place with his United States History project on "The California Gold Rush."
Arnoldsburg student Alex McKown took 2nd place with an economic project, "For the Love of Wood."
High school students Cassidy Conley, Megan Harding and Jenna Milliron took 2nd place in their group project on a U.S. History project, "I am Madalyn Murray O'Hair."
Middle school student Jaelyn Jett won a 3rd place medal on her psychology project, "Captive or Active: The Patty Hearst Story."
Although not placing at the state fair, middle school students Emily Dennison and Jayden Knicley presented their Anthropology project, "Fact or Fiction? The Doctor's Riot of 1788." Their score was high enough to qualify for a medal, but were knocked out of contention by a project from Wayne County.
