2017 Benjamin Banneker Academic High School Science Fair

For the 21st consecutive year, the D.C. Bar Communities Office (formerly Sections) co-sponsored the Benjamin Banneker Academic High School Science Fair. 

Intellectual property Community leader, John Nappi, of Finnegan, Henderson, Farrabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP, spoke at the event on September 13 and awarded trophies to each of the student honorees. Nappi also presented the school with a $2,500 donation on behalf of the D.C. Bar Communities Office. 

During the presentation, nine students were recognized for their work over a range of categories, including biochemistry, engineering, and medical & health science. Congratulations to the students on a year of achievement!
