What Are You Judging?
There are two types of awards given at the N.E. Regional Science Fair.
- 1. General Category Awards: Each and every participant will be awarded a ribbon for first, second or third place in the science/math category that they registered their project. The first place projects will move on to the Minnesota Academy of Science State Science Fair in April. General categories are Behavioral Science, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth and Space Science, Engineering, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Medicine and Health, Microbiology, Physics and Zoology
- 2. Special Awards: In addition, local organizations and businesses sponsor special awards in all of the disciplines. Special awards can take the form of certificates, cash, books, equipment and other prizes. Criteria for these awards are established by the sponsoring organization. The organization may ask the judging committee to select the judges if they cannot provide any. If your organization is interested in sponsoring an award or other aspects of the regional fair, please contact Robin Churchill. Please see our Support section for more details.
