Competition & Prizes
In 2014, over $14,000 in trips, cash prizes, awards and scholarships were awarded. The High School division winners won an all-expenses trip to compete at the Intel ISEF competition in Los Angeles, CA May 11-16. In addition, other high school competitors were eligible to win trips to ISWEEEP in Houston, TX and the Genius Olympiad in Oswego, NY. Science Expo is a stepping stone to the rest of the world.
The Science Expo depends on its wonderful volunteer judges – no experience necessary. We are now recruiting judges for 2015 this coming fall for an evening of judging on Friday, March 27 from 5 – 9 pm. We will provide orientation and a tasty dinner. You can conveniently sign up on-line.
