    It should also be noted that Anthony San Mateo was the only other person in the Dublin School District at Middle School level to enter into the science fair. His board was also great. I liked seeing a spokesperson not only for Well, but for the science boys out there. Glad he was at the fair with Jessica (my daughter) and Alexandra. Hopefully more kids will enter next year. Jess won $75 and Alex won $150. Well worth the extra effort I think!
