Please meet Emily Robb of Vincent Massey High School in Brandon Manitoba. She is a grade 10 student and her project was called, ” Grow Big or Grow Home: the Roots to Hydroponic Success”.

Emily not only won this intermediate special award for her project, but received the following awards/scholarships;

Challenge Award - Environment - Intermediate
