Some awards and achievements are, winning 4-H provincial curling, getting second in provincil public speaking, getting the tap spirit award, I've got 2nd in disricts in cross-country in grade 5, and I have got 1st place in districs cross-country in gradees 6, 7, and 8. Last year I got the oppertunity to go to Canada wide as I am this year also. I wanted to do the project that I did because after I heard that it helped us through World War 2, I wanted to bring it back. If I carried on with this project, I would need to find a way to make the gasifier more efficient so it purified the gas even more.

Does Your Wood Have Gas?
City:Foam Lake, SK
School:Foam Lake Composite High School
Abstract:My project this year is about using wood gas, (gas that is produced during the process of creating biochar) in place of fossil fuels. Biochar is any organic matter burnt in the absence of oqygen. In order to use wood gas as a fossil fuel, it needs to be pure enough to run in an engine withought clogging it up.
