Meet the 2005 Science Fair Award Winners

Each year the Berkeley Pit Public Education Committee awards $50 savings bonds to grade-school students and a $250 savings bond to one high school student who compete in the Montana Tech Science and Engineering Fair. To qualify for the awards, the science fair project must explore a topic related to the Berkeley Pit or a mine waste cleanup technology.
