Region II Elementary Science Fair

Grades K-5

The Montana Region II Elementary Science Fair takes place on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at Great Falls College MSU. 

The Montana Region II Elementary Science Fair allows students in grades K-5 to experience the competition of the science fair. The elementary school projects expose students to a broad range of scientific inquiry and give them the tools and knowledge needed to answer questions about the world around them. Student projects open the door to important concepts in physical and biological sciences. Please see the Region II Science Fair Handbook  for more information about the fair, judging criteria, and tips for projects. 


Who Can Enter the Elementary Science Fair Competition?

All students from grades K-5 in our seven-county region are invited to enter the science fair competition. Students compete for trips, cash prizes, and awards. 


Awards

Some professional and industrial organizations provide awards in the form of cash prizes, certificates of merit, medallions, plaques, ribbons, scholarships, and gift items.

Students are encouraged to read over the awards list paying special attention to the criteria and decide if you want to design your project with a special award in mind.

Don’t forget that awards are also given for craftsmanship, creativity and artistic qualities. The judges will determine which projects will be considered for these kinds of awards when they have reviewed all of the projects.

For a list of awards, see our Elementary School Awards page.
