To participate in the Lower Fair, schools must register.
Then students must complete necessary paperwork outlined in the following steps.
(due November 1, 2019) Extended to November 22, 2019
Participants must register with appropriate paperwork (see student registration below). Schools may send three students from each academic grade for each of the categories (ie. 3 students from 2nd grade in Botany, etc.). This results in a maximum total of 39 students from each grade. If schools do not have enough students interested to host a science fair at their school they can assist students in registering to compete at the regional fair without competing in a school fair. Students will present their work to the judges. Awards will be given for places 1st-6th for each grade in each category. A Best of Fair award will be awarded for each grade level.
Early School Registration deadline is October 4, 2019.
Key teachers for schools that register before this date will receive a prize.
Lower Fair categories are: *Categories have changed*
Determine if the project requires additional forms as these forms must be completed prior to experimentation.
Student Registration and Abstract
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
The student registration form and abstract form is now combined into one form.
Minimum Requirements include a Registration Form and an Abstract (Projects that DO NOT involve human, animals, biohazards, etc.).
All project registrations must include an abstract that is completed after all experimentation. This form is combined with the student registration form. This should not exceed 250 words summarizing the project (not a research plan).
Make the board for presentation.
Only tri-fold boards are allowed at the lower fair.
