 Emma and Zach Goff are now in the 9th grade.

Last year in middle school, they did a project on George Washington Carver.

The State awarded them the GHRAC Award of Excellence in student research.

They said the award came as a surprise.

"Most of the time when you think of school projects they are not exactly fun. I think all of the things we've done with it, like going to DC for nationals for NHD was really fun so it all paid off, so it was really fun," said Emma.

Their project was on George Washington Carver's early work "going green".

While working on their project, they visited the Tuskegee archives.
