The 2013 Maine State Science Fair is open to all high school students and will be accepting entry forms through February 1. MSSF will be held March 23, 2013 at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor.
Category and best-in-show winners will receive cash awards rather than U.S. savings bonds. Category winners: first place, $200; second place, $100; third place, $50. Best in Show winners: first place, $1,000, second place, $500; third place, $300.
Teachers of grand-prize winners will receive FREY Scientific gift certificates to recognize the time and effort they’ve spent supporting their students.
The top three MSSF winners and their mentors will represent Maine at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, all expenses paid. Last year, winners Meagan Curry from Greely High School and Sam Wood from Mt. Ararat High School traveled to Pittsburgh for ISEF.
