Jeffrey Klein
Region:
Palm Beach
Category: Environmental Science
Teacher/School: Mrs. Charlsa A. Henderson, Wellington High
Place / Award: Second Place / $50 Cash Award and Certificate
Project Title: Sustainable Rodent Control in the Everglades Agricultural Area

I'd like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your generous donation of $50 in the 1996 Florida State Science Fair. This money has most certainly been put to good use, buying more materials for my project.

Florida agriculture is of particular interest of mine as my project deals directly with sugarcane fields in South Florida. As I continue my study of agriculture in high school, I hope to eventually arrive at a specific career in environmental science. Who knows? Maybe Florida agriculture is in my future!

With Sincere Regards,
Jeffrey A. Klein
