Science Fair

Judging

What do judges look for?

Virtual documents due: March 8, 2023 at TheCN. Virtual documentation will be used at Regional and State levels of Science Fair.

Virtual judging will be on TheCN.com. See Exhibit Requirements for more information.

The Science Fair is an educational experience as well as a contest, and the interview with the judge is an important part of this experience. The decision of the judges will be final.

Criteria for judging include scientific thought, originality, thoroughness, technical skill, and clarity.  A more extensive listing of these criteria may be obtained from the School Coordinator or the Regional Director. Use the Overview Wizard  to help you determine what forms and approvals are necessary before beginning a science fair project.
