Jesse Shepherd, a freshman at Spanish fork Junior High, walked away with top honors at the BYU’s annual science fair. 

Not only did he take first place and win the Sustainable Development award, he also took first place in Animal & Plant Sciences in the Senior Division.

This led to Jesse qualifying as an Intel ISEF Finalist and an invitation to the International Science Fair, Grand Champion of the Senior Division! 

As a 9th grade junior high student, Jesse finished in the top 4 of all high school students from Nebo, Jordan, Alpine, Provo, and Wasatch districts.

Congratulations, Jesse!
