In order to have a successful fair, we need judges to review the students’ project boards and conduct student-scientist interviews. Click on the button to find out more about becoming a science fair judge.

Up to 250 projects are eligible to compete, and each will receive careful consideration by volunteer judges. These volunteers work extended hours to ensure our community’s promising young scientists and engineers receive timely feedback through the Awards Results.  Judges, made up largely of veteran Science Fair volunteers, are well aware of how hard our students work over several months in preparation for each year’s competition. They are proud to contribute their time under extraordinary circumstances to make student feedback possible.

CCCSEF would like to thank the sponsors of the 2023 Science Fair, and the companies who provided judges that allowed the fair to take place for our community’s youth. They are shown below:

We are pleased to announce the results of the 2023 Science Fair.
