PTA Science and Art Fair set for April 14

19th Annual Granville PTA Science and Art Fair

Have you ever wondered how a honeybee makes honey or how one would wire a lighthouse?  Can you tell the difference between animal DNA and human DNA?  These are just a few of the projects that have been displayed in the past at the Granville PTA Science and Art Fair that is scheduled for Thursday, April 14, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Students from pre-school to grade 12 are invited to share their enthusiasm for either science or art by participating in this annual event sponsored by the PTA.  If you are an enthusiastic adult who would like to enter, you may pick up an entry form at any of the schools in Granville.  Home-schooled students are invited, as well. 

The event draws hundreds of people as they wander around viewing the talent displayed by the participants.  These projects can range from working models to displays to any kind of art. 

All participants submitting an individual project will receive a T-shirt.  In addition, those in grades pre-school through grade six will receive a medallion, and high school students will receive an extra prize. 

Entry forms are accepted right up to the night of the fair.  Participants are asked to stay with their project for at least a half hour to explain their project. 

If anyone in the community is interested in purchasing a T-shirt, they may call 642-9357, Ext. 3136 to reach Cindy Teller, or fill out the form below. 

People may also e-mail cteller@granvillecsd.org. This year’s colors are blue and gold.  Anyone interested in purchasing a T-shirt can fill out the form below and drop it off at the Granville Elementary School office. All shirts are $7 each.
