The 10th annual Alfred State College Regional Science and Technology Fair will take place Friday, April 3, 2009, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Orvis Activities Center gymnasium on the Alfred campus. Entries from regional junior and senior high school students will be judged in the following categories: agriculture, biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, computers, earth sciences, engineering, environmental science, forensic science, health, and medicine. Entries will be divided into junior (grades 7-9), senior (10-12), and novice (up to grade 6) categories.
Each participant will receive a certificate of participation, and individual ribbons will be presented to first, second, and third prize winners in both divisions. School trophies will be awarded to those schools which, in the opinion of the judges, have made the best overall contribution(s) to the Fair in the junior and senior divisions. Cash prizes of $250 (first place), $150 (second place), and $100 (third place) will be awarded in both upper divisions; a grand prize of $500 will also be awarded.
