Projects for each category must be unique and cannot be entered in more than one category. Students may participate in 1 project.
Projects are to be designed and created by students. Some adult guidance is allowed, but it must be clear that all work entered by students was done by the students.
Students will create a document that cites both student produced and non-student produced material used in the project.Written permissions for all non-student created content must be provided.
Individual and teams will compete together. Teams can be made up of not more than two students and they will compete in the highest grade level division.
The grade level category divisions are as follows:
Students may not "switch" categories. The project will only be judged in the category in which it was registered for the tech fair.
Students unable to present their projects, even due to illness, may not use "proxies." Only students that are part of the original, registered team may represent a project at the Tech Fair.
While we recognize that the world is more connected than ever, we cannot guarantee Internet access to your sites in the judging spaces and recommend that you have an off-line copy of any Internet based project. Judges will not penalize a project for not connecting to outside links.
