Six students from Langley Middle School placed in the Washington State Science Fair on Saturday, April 5.

Eighth grader Elli Sandburg placed first in her division, while Lily Bjork took second in her division. Emma Scotthanson came home with a third place ribbon. In the seventh grade, Farriss Jokinen placed second. In the sixth grade, Ashley Ricketts and Flannery Friedman both placed third in their division.

The students traveled to Bremerton for the competition earlier this month with teacher Sandy Gilbert. The fair included 120 schools across the state with 500 students, 300 judges and volunteers.

“I was so proud of our Langley Middle School kids,” Gilbert wrote in an email to The Record.

After her students all placed in the top three of their divisions, Gilbert wondered if students from other schools who attended also placed.

“We asked one of the judges and were thrilled to find out that we were wrong,” she said. “We rocked it!”
