Southern Colorado Regional Science Fair (SCRSF) will hold its annual fair on February 23, 2018. The purpose of the science fair is to encourage learning and creativity in young adults. Students in the 6th - 8th grades compete in the junior division and students in the 9th - 12th grades comprise the senior division. Students will compete against projects in their same division and category for 1st, 2nd and Honorable Mention. Both junior and senior division participants will compete for the opportunity to attend the 63rd Annual Colorado Science and Engineering Fair (CSEF) held April 5 - 7, 2018 in Fort Collins, CO.
The Southern Colorado Regional Science Fair receives 23 spots for the CSEF. Because we want to send the highest quality projects to CSEF, qualifiers are not necessarily chosen by their categorical place. Once all boards have been judged, a second group of judges will reevaluate the top places in both divisions in all categories and select the to 23 projects. We try to have the same number of representatives from both the junior and senior divisions, but this is subject to change based on the number and quality of projects in each division.
