#1 in Broward County, Science & Engineer Fair
American Heritage Schools, Broward Campus, received the most awards, 30, at the Broward County Regional Science & Engineering Fair, making us the #1 school in the county. 12 of the students received first place and will be moving forward to the State competition. The county fair was virtual this year, so students were judged on a six minute Powerpoint video presentation. They had to be as detailed as possible, as there wasn’t a chance for them to clarify or answer any questions the judges might have had.

Below is a list of the District winners who will advance to the State Competition (SSEF) in March plus the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and Special Awards winners.
