Registration is CLOSED as of January 11, 2017

 

Registration and Fees:

All students in grades 3-12 who are schooled within Forsyth County, Dawson County and Lumpkin County may participate in the Fair. This includes all public, private and home schooled students. Grade level divisions are as follows:

  • Grades 3-4
  • Grades 5-6
  • Grades 7-8
  • Grades 9-10
  • Grades 11-12
  • Note: Programming Challenge category divisions are 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 ONLY

Students register by their current grade level. There is no separate team competition. You may have up to 2 people on a team but teams and individuals will compete against each other within each grade grouping.

Projects for each category must be unique and cannot be entered in more than one category. Students may enter only one project, and may additionally enter the Technology Literacy Challenge and the Programming Challenge. See the Projects Page for more information on this.

Registration for all students must be completed on-line through the fair website. Mailed registration forms will not be accepted. The non-refundable registration fee for each student is $10. If a team submits an entry, each team member must pay the $10 fee.

After the registration deadline, your school ITS will contact you to confirm the category of your project to prevent confusion on the day of the fair. Private school contacts and parents of home schoolers will be contacted for the same purpose.

Remember to send all fees to:

Changes in category WILL NOT be made for any reason the day of the fair. Projects will be judged by the rubric of the category under which the project was submitted.
