Over the school year, LBR works to give middle and high school students in the Lower Brule area the supplies they need to perform their own science research projects, and then present those projects at science fairs. This year, we helped over 40 kids complete science fair projects and are extremely proud of all of these students. We are happy to announce that three of those projects were recognized at the High Plains Regional Science fair in Rapid City, SD. One of those students was awarded one of the fair's top prizes, an all expense paid trip to observe the Intel International Science Fair in Los Angeles in May! The competition at the High Plains Regional Science Fair included over 700 students from western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming, and the fact that students from a rural tribal school can have so much success is a testament to the work ethic, courage, and potential of the youth we support every day.
