Display and Safety Guidelines

Due to the fairs being held virtually this year, we will not have Display and Safety Guidelines in place, HOWEVER, you must make sure that your student follows these rules during their video submission.

  • The experiment should be done BEFORE submitting your project, the video IS NOT the time to recreate your volcano, rainbow in a jar, or show us how your robot moves.
  • The experiment items may be placed on the table with their board if the school allows, BUT they may not touch or move them during the video.
  • The video is time for you to discuss your project, not demonstrate how you did it.

Project Judging

Each project will be judged based on their video submission and photos.  If a Best of Fair Candidate is at your school, we will contact the Key Teacher to set up a private ZOOM meeting with the Student, Judge, and Key teacher for further judging.

Please view the judging rubric below to assist your students on what needs to be discussed during their project video.


Awards will be announced once all judging and tabulations are completed.  Virtual judging may take longer than the allotted week so we will send an announcement to all schools when the awards telecast will be available.

All awards will be mailed to the schools after announced.
