Another Greywater Science Fair Project Winner

The Rainbow Water Coalition has previously profiled some great student projects hereherehere, and here. But this new winner described in this article in the Arlington Sun Gazette does a repeat. I don't know how the RWC missed this one, but back in March, 2012 "Valentina Lohr, a student at Williamsburg Middle School, earned a “Best in Fair” award at the middle-school level for her entry, “Is Greywater ‘Green’? The Relationship Between Greywater Applications and Earthworm Food Supply.”

Way to go Valentina! But her research project wins yet another award as described in this article in the Arlington Sun Gazette for, ...drum roll please..., "...second place in the American Statistical Association’s 2012 national project competition. She was honored for her project, “Is Greywater Green? The Relationship Between Greywater Application and Earthworm Food Supply,” which also won the Curtis Jacobs Memorial Prize for Outstanding Statistics Project, sponsored by the Washington Statistical Society".
