MSEF Region III
2020 Region III Upper Fair Date: Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Registration Process for School and Students
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 attending the Region III Science Fair. 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), Class 4 (9th-10th grades), Class 5 (11th-12th grades). Each participant will be judged against their peers in their class and category.
