First place was Siona Prasad of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, second place was Kevin Duffy from Lake Braddock Secondary School, and third place was Mikayla Huffman from Marshall High School. Each winner received a cash prize of $300, $200, and $100, respectively.

At the 2017 Loudoun County Regional Science and Engineering Fair March 23, USGIF Senior Operations Executive Chris Viselli participated as a judge. Jonathan Kerr, a student from Broad Run High School won for his project on “Remote and Autonomous Seismic Vulnerability Evaluation Using Satellite Imagery."
