PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A few weeks ago, we told you about a local science standout headed to the national science fair. He’s back home with an award.
Chad Campbell, a Topsail Middle School 7th grader, took home the “Rising Star Award” for his project “The Debate on Your Plate.” It looked at the levels of antibiotics in the food we eat.
While in Washington, Chad met with Rep. Mike McIntyre and Sen. Kay Hagan. He talked to them about his project.
The competition featured 30 young scientists from across the country.
Chad has now been invited to an international science fair in Pittsburgh in May.
