About 300 students from Piedmont Virginia representing more than thirty different schools from over a dozen school divisions participate. Middle School students (Junior Division) and High School students (Senior Division) are judged separately in each of 15 science and engineering categories. Albemarle, Culpeper, Fluvanna, Green, King George, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, Orange, Rappahannock, Spotsylvania, and Stafford counties are in the Science Fair region. Students compete in their school fairs where projects are selected to participate in our Regional Fair. Faculty, staff, and graduate students volunteer on the day of the fair to be a judge or an administrative official.
