All private and homeschool students in grades 3-12 within Georgia may participate in the Fair. Grade level divisions are as follows:
Note: The Hardware category is restricted to 7th grade and above ONLY.
Note: The Individual and Team Programming Challenge categories are limited to 7th grade and above ONLY.
Students register by their current grade level. There is no separate team competition. You may have up to 2 people on a team but teams and individuals will compete against each other within each grade grouping.
Projects for each category must be unique and cannot be entered in more than one category. Students may participate in only one project, excluding the Technology Literacy Challenge. If students register for more than two categories, they will be disqualified.
Registration information will be coming soon.
Note: Due to overwhelming interest in Tech Fair, students may participate in only one project, excluding the Technology Literacy Challenge and the Programing Challenge (7-12). Projects may be submitted from an individual or up to two team members. Individuals and teams of two compete against each other. The only competition in which there is a separate award for individuals and teams is in the Programming Challenge category.
Students may enter one project plus participate in Technology Literacy Challenge and the Programing Challenge (7-12).
Projects are to be designed and created by students. Some adult guidance is allowed, but it must be clear that work entered by students was done by the students. Judges will expect students to demonstrate that the work is their own.
Notebooks will not be required this year. Students will fill out and submit a Project Submission Form online.
Attendance, Errors, Etc:
Read the category descriptions before you select your project category. No changes will be made after the project has been registered and confirmed. After that time, students’ projects will be judged based on the category for which they registered. Changes in category WILL NOT be made for any reason the day of the fair. Projects will be judged by the category under which the project was submitted.
Students unable to present their projects, even due to illness, may NOT use “proxies” unless they are part of the original, registered team representing a project.
It is recommended that an adult supervise the submission of all project materials.
