Upper Fair

(7th – 12th Grade)

2022 Region II Virtual Lower Fair Date:  February 21-25, 2022

Once a school has completed their local school fair,  they must complete the Student Registration form and all required project forms for any student that will be participating in the Region II Science Fair.  If a school has low participation in the Science Fair, they are allowed to for-go a school or school district fair and send all participants to the Regional Fair, with the permission of their Administration.

Each school has the option to bring 1st – 6th place in each grade (7th – 12th) and each of the 13 science categories.  That means that there is the potential to bring 78 students per grade for your school if approval is granted by your administration.  The Upper fair is divided into three classes: Class 3 (7th – 8th grades) and Class 4 (9th – 10th grades) and Class 5 (11th – 12th grades).  Each participant will be judged virtually against their peers in their class and category.  Follow the steps below to register your school and upper fair students for the Region II Fair.

Participant Fees

Each participant project submission will cost $15.00 per student.   A team project is $15 per team member. Fees should be turned in by the key teacher, school, or school district for all projects participating from their school unless the school is not participating.

The $15 per participant must be paid on the due date of project registration for the Upper and Lower Fairs.   Payments may be mailed to College of Science, Engineering & Technology, P.O. Box 18750, Jackson, MS 39217 ATTN: Kristy Love-Kendrick. You, as the key teacher, are responsible for making sure the district receives the invoice for payment and that the check is cut and mailed to our office.

Project registration is not completed until a participation fee of $15.00 is received.

Project Type

The Upper fair participants are allowed to submit one of the following project presentations:

  • Trifold Board –   The board must be 32″ to 48″ wide and 28″ to 72″ in height.  Four photos of this board must be submitted with the project video.  One photo of each side of the board and one photo of the entire board.
  • PowerPoint Presentation – A voice-over on each slide is suggested for your video submission.  Please do not stand in front of the PowerPoint to video the findings unless you can guarantee a clear visual of the PowerPoint.  Usually videoing these types of presentations will skew the colors.  If you do not know how to do this, choose a different option.

Step 6: Video Submission (Due February 8, 2022)

Each participant is to submit a 5 to 7 minute video of themselves discussing their project in detail, as they would with the  judges at a face to face fair.  This video will be used for the virtual fair judging.  Please follow the rubric below regarding what to discuss in your video.

To protect the privacy of student presentations, we are requiring that only key teachers submit the videos.  Please follow the step by step instructions on how to submit the pictures and videos.

  • Save your student video to your computer or phone as “student first and last name_video”. (Example: Jane Doe_video)
  • Take a picture of each side of the trifold board and save it to your device as “student first and last name_picture #”. (Example: Jane Doe_picture 1, Jane Doe_picture 2, Jane Doe_picture 3, Jane Doe_picture 4).
  • Click the link below and drag/drop the video and photos into the drive link. (link will be posted at a later date)
  • Email us at when this is complete so that we can verify that we have received all projects in the link.

Please remind your students of the following information when recording their judging videos:

  • The experiment should be done BEFORE submitted 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.
