INFORMATION FOR REGIONAL DIRECTORS:
Regional Directors Note: All student information is to be entered by the student/parent on the link listed in the 2013 Winner's Letter. It is the responsibility of the Regional Director to see that each qualifying student for the state Fair at regionals receives a Winner's Letter.
The Wednesday after the Regional Tech Fair is a strict deadline. Any project submitted after this deadline is subject to disqualification.
No ties will be allowed for any reason. Any region with a tie MUST decide how to break the tie and submit ONLY ONE entry per grade/category. Any ties submitted will be disqualified.
