I like how all the students featured here did something that represented their state or local area. It kind of reminds me of the state fair or county fairs and how as a kid you would enter something and get a ribbon. (Like entering your chicken or pig.) Does anyone know if the county fairs have an electronics section?

A lost art indeed. The hand-drawn schematics bring back memories. My wires weren't much straighter or any more parallel than these. Luckily, accuracy counted more than geometric perfection. Nice to see kids doing these projects.

@Max Hand-drawn circuit schematics do seem to be becoming somewhat of a lost art!

@Tom: This is just too darned cute!  I'm impressed with the hand-drawn schematics...

I agree -- it's very cute, and I LOVE the handdrawn schematics...

This is just too darned cute!  I'm impressed with the hand-drawn schematics, which take me back to when I was about 10 or 11, and I decided to dissect my tape recorder to figure out how it worked.  I ended up with a schematic showing the guts of the machine, which, thankfully, still worked after I put it back together.  That further inspired me to build a Heathkit receiver that -- half a century later -- still sits in a box in my basement somewhere.  There is no question in my mind that several of these kids will go on to tackle other projects in electrical engineering.
