Travel-FaireStudent Mikayla Bordiere stands by her exhibit on France during the recent Travel Faire at St. Paul Catholic School in Kensington.

Students in grades six through eight displayed exhibits featuring countries and states from around the world. Exhibits from grades six and seven showcased states and countries in the Western Hemisphere; eighth-grade exhibits focused on countries in the Eastern Hemisphere. Each display also contained a 3-D model as well as items that were representative of that country or state.

Younger students created passports that they used to visit the exhibits and received stamps for correct answers or facts about a particular country.

The names and grades of the winners follow:

First place, Ryan Napier, eight; Elizabeth LoPreiato, eight; Anthony DiPietro, seven; Nick DiPetro, six; and Sonali Senapati, six. Second place, Alex Siembab, eight; Audra Veach, eight; Ishita Goel, seven; Maddy Charette, six; and John Gagliardi, six. Third place, Matt Starr, eight; Sierra Poggio, eight; Caitlin Gorneault, seven; and Isabella Calcagni, six.

Honorable mention was given to Brooke Perez and Alanis Charette, both eighth graders.
