North Hill Science Fair Rules and Regulations

The Science Fair is an excellent learning experience for all students. Participation is voluntary for grades K-3 but is required for 4th and 5th graders. Please keep in mind that some teachers may have specific guidelines that must be followed or met for the successful completion of the project.

All participants will be honored with a certificate. The K-3 classroom with the highest participation will be awarded with a special TROPHY to display in their classroom!

Size Requirements

In order to fit all of the projects in the space available, project displays should fit within the confines of a three-sided poster project board (1 ½ feet deep by 3 feet wide and available at office supply and craft stores).

To avoid possible damage to projects, parents are urged to transport participating children to school with the project. All projects should be taken home in the evening after the science fair.
