"I'm glad I took 2nd place because I didn't want to take third place. It took a long time before the judges came out. It was fun to see others people's projects and they were cool. My favorite project was the lava lamp. I saw kids from different schools. The science fair was fun. The science fair was cool because you got to see who wins."
