Homicide in Louisiana
Christian McMillan, 8th Grade, Port Allen Middle School
Louisiana's Middle School Winner

In 2022 I toured the Louisiana State Police Crime Laboratory with my family. The crime Lab was founded in 1937. The lab gives you the ability to explore what its like to work in forensics. On display there are human remains, weapons and even crashed cars. As I walked through the lab I became more interested in topics I knew nothing about.

How do chemical plants effect Louisiana?
Trinity Ledet & Shilah Johnson,
7th Grade, Eva Legard Learning Center

Louisiana is greatly effected by power plants, some good and some bad. The good that comes from power plants is not enough to overlook the damages that are done to our community. These power plants affect our air quality, water quality, climate change, thermal pollution and solid waste disposal negatively. These power plants do more than effect our health but also, community.

Sea Level Rise is an increase in the level of the world's oceans due to the effects of Climate change aka Global Warming. Some effects on Sea Level Rise are consequences which include increased intensity of storm surges, flooding, and damage to coastal areas. In addition, solutions for Sea Level Rise are to build flood barriers to protect infrastructure. Flood barriers to protect critical infrastructure include levees, dikes, and seawalls.

Mapping Waffle Houses
John Ellison, 
7th Grade, Eva Legard Learning Center

This idea may seem goofy, but a Waffle House is incredibly important for shelter and other places, as it has a codex that determines how safe an area is. This allows people for safe shelter and generally good quality food that allows people to survive in a case like a hurricane, flood, or aftermath of a tornado.
