This special event is able to happen because of Councilman David Williams Jr. and his actions to reward students who excel in science and engineering.  “Each year I look forward to seeing how much creativity and passion students have placed into these projects. It is so enlightening to see such sparks of interest in science, engineering and technology, which I know will be beneficial for each of their futures.” 

As for the prizes, students who won the competition were rewarded with cash ranging from $150 to $700. At least 100 hundred students had participated in the fair and its features. St. Thomas University gave an extra cash award to the parents of those who placed in the top 15.

To name a few, Audubon of Florida, Live Healthy Miami Gardens, North Dade Youth and Family Coalition, Early Learning Coalition, and The Resource Room were also sponsors of the city’s popular event.
