KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Future scientists showcased their bright ideas Thursday at Lincoln Memorial University.

Twenty sixth graders from across East Tennessee competed at the Go Green Science Fair.

Former state Sen. Jamie Woodson, now the president of SCORE, was also there to serve as a guest speaker.

"I think my hope for this competition and for these students would just be to begin to spark a love of learning, whether that's science learning or inquiry, beginning the process of becoming life long learners," Woodson said.

"And who knows, maybe we'll have some of the most successful world scientists budding in this competition," she continued.

First place went to Riley Martin from H.Y. Livesay Middle School in Claiborne County.

She won $1,000 for her project using rooftop gardens to save energy.

Other winners include:

2nd Place ($750) - Tyler Brooks, H.Y. Livesay Middle (Claiborne County)

3rd Place ($500) - Kyler Martin, Bean Station Elementary (Grainger County)

4th Place ($300) - Peyton Freels, Winfield Elementary (Scott County)

5th Place ($200) - Eleanor Terry, Burchfield Elementary (Scott County)
