Science Fair

Judging

What do judges look for?

Tentatively, Judging will be from 8:30 a.m. until noon on Saturday, March 13, 2021.

We are still working out the details as to how/if the judges will contact the students but this should help you as you plan for March 13, 2021. See Exhibit Requirements for more information about uploading your presentation for virtual judging.

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.
