Frequently Asked Questions:

All students must be entered no later than April 1, 2021. On or about April 2 students will receive by email questions to answer and the ability to upload their poster board and video. These students will have 5-7 days to complete and get back to us. Once that ends judging begins. Students are not present for judging. The judges will use their visuals and answers.  This allows for the judges to do on a better timetable with no need to coordinate schedules that may interfere with other family members need for computer time. We believe this also helps people who might not have great connectivity.  The Awards will be done the last week of April 2021
