Three Delaware County students were among 40 students recognized recently by the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program.
The program recognized Shivatej Dubbaka from Olentangy Liberty High School, Tori Warnock from Buckeye Valley Local Middle School and Abigail Myers from Big Walnut High School for their “exemplary” work at the Ohio Academy of Science’s annual State Science Day at The Ohio State University in Columbus, program officials said.
The program recognizes the winners with a certificate and cash prize. In addition to science fair project ideas, the program also works to assist students and teachers with a variety of other educational programs.
State Science Day draws more than 1,000 students from around Ohio and this year a record number of participants applied for the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program award.
The program, funded by Ohio’s oil and gas producers, judges students on their scientific research, communication skills and work or knowledge about crude oil and/or natural gas in the areas of geology, engineering, chemistry, technology, microbiology, physics and environmental sciences.
