EARLY CO., GA (WALB) -

One Early County student's science fair project made it to the top 30 in the country.

Davia Allen's project won for her school, region and state. 

From the state level she entered the Broadcom MASTERS competition, a premier science and engineering competition for middle school students across the country. 

She has since made it to the finals. 

Allen's project focuses on how black soldier fly larvae can be used to help cut down food waster and feed people in third world countries.

"Not many people in South Georgia get the opportunity to do things like this," said Allen. "It's really good because it will let me see what goes on outside of a small town community and how to think about the bigger picture."

The finalists will compete in Washington D.C. from October 28 through November 2.
