cfquery within a cfscript

Is there any way to perform the below function?  I know this particular way does not work, but is there a way to mimic what this would do?
<cfscript>
    /*validate form data*/
    if(form.ProjectName EQ "") { err1 = "class=err"; }
    if(form.FirstName EQ "") { err2 = "class=err"; }
    if(form.LastName EQ "") { err3 = "class=err"; }
    if(form.Department EQ "") { err4 = "class=err"; }
    if(form.Email EQ "") { err5 = "class=err"; }
    if(err1&err2&err3&err4&err5 NEQ "") {
	WriteOutput("Error occurred. Please check the highlighted fields.");
    } else {
  
    <cfquery name="insertDesign" datasource="shssrDesignRequest">
    INSERT INTO DesignRequest 
    (ProjectName, ProjectDescription, RequesterName) 
    VALUES	('#form.ProjectName#', '#form.ProjectDescription#', '#form.ad_fname# #form.ad_lname#')
    </cfquery>
	
    }
</cfscript>

I would prefer to use the cfscript for long bulk scripting.  The code above is a snippet of the actual in use code.  I am unsure of a query item being run in the script tag however.  The code included should give someone an idea of what I am looking to do.

I agree with you mopar.. cfscript is much more readable...

k.. so funny thing is, I just found this out today... but if you want to use tags that aren't available in cfscript, you have to create a function.. so here is your code... standby..

Good solution to the problem.  A lot of workaround, unfortunately, but useful none the less.  Thanks you for your help.
