The 15th Annual Alfred State Regional Science and Technology Fair will be held Friday, April 4, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Orvis Activities Center gymnasium on the Alfred campus. The fair is open to students attending classes in grades four through 12 at private and public schools (or homeschools) located anywhere within Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania.

Science and Technology Fair entries from regional 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 (4-6) categories.

Each participant will receive a certificate of participation, and individual ribbons will be presented to first, second, and third prize winners in the novice, junior, and senior divisions as well as to the grand prize winner. 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 and to the school having the grand prize exhibit in the fair. First, second, and third prizes will be awarded in both upper divisions; a grand prize will also be awarded.

Alstom Transportation, of Hornell, is sponsoring this year’s Regional Science and Technology Fair at Alfred State. Additional funding is provided by ACES (Auxiliary Campus Enterprises and Services—the campus dining, vending, and transportation provider), the Alfred State Student Senate, and the Physical and Life Sciences Department.
