Shonto Preparatory School sixth grade student Jaydean Jordan won third place at the Arizona State Science Fair Competition in Phoenix April 8-9. Jordan's winning project was about migraine headaches. She wanted to help a relative who suffers from migraines find a remedy using local organic herbs to cure or relieve migraines. Ms. Laughter, her teacher, said there were more than 150 elementary projects in the competition. Shaundine Begay, an eighth grade student, placed fourth in the social and behavioral science category at the Navajo Nation Science Fair in Gallup, New Mexico. Begay's project was called "Dig Deep." Begay wanted to find out if putting your hand in Navajo sand relieved stress by the end of the day. Her science teacher, Mrs. Secody, said she is proud of Begay and her ability to come up with a project that incorporated Navajo resources. Shonto put on their annual science fair for grades 3-8 in January. The first place winners were selected to attend various regional science fairs. Mr. Miles and Secody coordinated the event. They thanked Calvin Harvey, from the Dine Office of Education in Window Rock, for his expertise in judging.
