Welcome to the Region V MS 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).
