We send many thanks to all our engaging students who shared their research, to our brilliant keynote speaker Dr. Jen Kennedy, our thoughtful moderators, our helpful panel of reviewers, our dedicated planning group, our expert IT staff, Principal Patrick Deane for his heartfelt closing remarks, and especially to our listeners.
