The mission of Madison Junior High School, in order to assure students opportunities to live well adjusted,
productive lives in our changing world, is to afford our students training in the areas of technology,

The 3rd Annual 8th Grade Science Fair was held on February 12. The students have been working hard all year long to research, design and execute the project of their choice. There were so many great projects, and it was a close race to the top. J The 8th grade class would like to thank their peers, community members and guest judges for coming to see all of their hard work! Winners of the Fair are as follows:
· 1st Place: Emily Farrow, with a project entitled, “Bacteria Be Gone”

· 3rd Place: Sydney Talkington, with a project entitled, “Let it Grow”
