BUCKHANNON — On Friday, April 29, students across West Virginia participated in the 2022 West Virginia Social Studies Fair. The event took place at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center. Students were highly anticipating the event as it had not been held for two years since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Upshur County was highly represented. Four local students participated and placed in the competition. Carter Haney from Union Elementary School received first place with his project titled “Evolution of Soccer.” Three students from Buckhannon-Upshur High School also placed, including Lila Wright, who tied for first place with her project “Who Wants to be Average,” along with Sawyer Phillips and his project, “The Coal and the Coke Railway through West Virginia,” and Joey Nolte who received second place in his project, “The Evolution of the English Language.”
Congratulations to everyone and thank you for representing Upshur County!
