Student Wins Hanna Award for Rust-Prevention Analysis
Warnke was recognized for his project, titled "What Type of Paint Prevents Rust Most Efficiently." The project compared the performance of a broad selection of consumer paint products, and was "well thought out, with a balanced regard for both scientific content and practical application," the judges said.
The Hanna award is designed to generate greater interest in and awareness of the chemical-coatings industry at the middle- and high-school levels, and to encourage interest in chemical coatings as a potential career field. The award includes a $500 cash prize, an engraved plaque, and an award luncheon and tour at Akzo Nobel's laboratories and production facilities in Columbus.
