Two 10th grade girls at Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, won numerous awards and recognition for their science fair research in the field of health and sustainability in the United States.
The two students examined phosphorous intake in animals, and phosphorous run-off from three different types of farms in Iowa: conventional farms, organic farms, and animal confinement operations.
Their research showed that the damaging phosphorous run-off was worst in confinement operations, less in conventional farming, and much less in organic farming.
These results highlight the the value of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture, which goes beyond the most rigorous organic standards, commented Dr Richard Beall, head of Maharishi School.*
'These girls literally swept the state science fair competitions this last year,' Dr Beall continued. 'At two different state science fairs, they won both the first place prize for the environmental science category, and then the grand prize for the entire science fair.'
The awards enabled them to share their work at other international fairs, the American Junior Academy of Science Fair, and the National Environmental Science Fair.
They also received special awards, including the Hero of Planet Earth Award, and the Hope Award.
Their research is now receiving recognition in the health and agricultural community, he concluded.
