Duncan Middle School students cleaned up at the Stephens County Science Fair.

The science fair ran March 1 and 2 at the Red River Technology center with fifth through 12-grade students eligible to participate. Several DMS students received awards from the event.

Tag Ensey, eighth-grade student, was one such winner. Ensey walked away with seventh to eighth-grade innovation award and and was the gold winner for the seventh through eighth-grade category.

This is the first year Ensey has competed in the science fair. His price for winning both categories was $200.

He said he participated “to get extra credit.”

But Ensey wasn’t the only top winner for Duncan Middle School.

Sixth-grade Ava Miller also was the recipient of two awards. Miller won the outstanding electrical award and was the gold winner for the sixth-grade category. Her winnings also equated to $200.

In seventh-grade, Angela Ibarra was also a double-award recipient. Ibarra was the seventh and eighth-grade communications award winner and was the silver winner, behind Ensey, for the seventh and eighth-grade category.
