Allen selected as a semifinalist in 2015
Davia Allen, an eighth grader at Early County Middle School, was recently selected as a semifinalist in the 2015 Broadcom MASTERS, a program of Society for Science and the Public. This honor is bestowed upon a select group of 300 named from more than 6,000 nominees throughout the United States.
Allen earned this distinction because of her seventh grade science fair project.
The semifinalists were selected after each application received three independent readings and evaluations by distinguished scientists, engineers and educators. They are in the top 10 percent of the participants at their SSP-affiliated science fairs.
Allen is the daughter of David and Charla Allen and the granddaughter of Betty Houston of Blakely.
