Welcome to the Region V Mississippi Science & Engineering Fair!

Mississippi State University’s Bagley College of Engineering proudly serves as the host of the Region V Mississippi Science and Engineering Fair.  There are 7 MSEF Regions in Mississippi.  Region V covers 16 counties including:  Attala, Carroll, Choctaw, Clay, Kemper, Lauderdale, Leake, Lowndes, Montgomery, Neshoba, Newton, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Scott, Webster, and Winston Counties.  This includes all schools K-12.  The competition occurs on two levels: Upper Fair (grades 6-12) and Lower Fair (grades K-5). Every year, more than 1200 students participate in the regional fair representing their schools and their communities. Only grades 7-12 are eligible to progress to the State Level competition. If you want to participate but your school does not host a science fair or you are a part of a home school organization, please contact the Region V MSEF coordinator, you are welcome to enter.
