The 2019 annual Southern Arizona Regional Science and Engineering Fair (SARSEF) just ended on Saturday March 9, 2019 after 4 days. Not only did individual people win but Sahuaro ended up winning as a whole! Since Sahuaro had the most projects entered out of every other school in the fair, we took home $250 and a plaque that is now in the front office that says we are “SARSEF Endorsed”

The individual winners have been working since September on their projects and were awarded certificates, trophies, and money. Check out the winners below!
