Maddie - I am a grade 8 student in Hanna, Alberta. I like to be busy. I am involved in basketball, 4H, dance, and public speaking. I would love to be a vet when I grow up. The best pets that I have ever had were three embden goslings and my bearded dragon, Benji.
Nicole - I am a grade 9 student from Hanna, Alberta. I live on a farm with my parents and brother. I also have two sisters attending University. One of my main interests is animals and I have several horses, a goat, ball python, tarantula and a scorpion for pets. I have been involved in 4-H for the past six years and I have a steer and market lamb project this year. One of the many 4-H activities that I am interested in is public speaking which most kids hate but I actually love. I have my green belt in Tae Kwon Do and am working towards testing for my blue belt. In the winter I volunteer as an assistant coach in the junior curling program. I also curl competitively on a Bantam girls curling team and I am the team skip. Other interests include reading, music and outdoor activities like camping. I am a volunteer for our local Ducks Unlimited Chapter in Hanna and I’m a strong believer in wildlife conservation. In the future I would like to pursue a career in microbiology or teaching. I competed at CWSF last year in Peterborough ON and in Winnipeg MB in 2009.

Abstract:This project focused on the development of a tool which could be used by homeowners to assist in detecting visible and hidden mould in their home and linking the presence of mould or suspected mould to possible health related symptoms.
