Statewide Contest

    Registration deadline is  March 16, 2015. Papers are due March 19 and website information (including weebly ID) is due March 19. 



Effective this year, there is a change so that more students from each category will move on to the state competition.  For categories with less than 9 entries, 3 will move on to state (instead of two as previously).  For those with 9-16 entries, 4 move on.  For those with 17-24 entries, 5 move on.  For those with 25-35 entries, 6 move on.  And for those with more than 36 entries (primarily exhibits), 7 will move on to state.

After registration ends, the number of students moving on in each category will be posted after registration ends. The top 2 entries will continue to receive plaques.
