Judges study 230 parish-wide fourth through 12th grade students' projects at the Minden Civic Center Thursday during the annual parish Science Fair. Students could choose from 14 categories in science for their projects. They previously won at the school level and from here will go onto the regional competition in Bossier City. The day-long event concluded with an awards ceremony at 6 p.m. at the civic center. Winners will be published next week in the Minden Press-Herald.
