Mendocino County Office of Education is encouraging Science Fair Coordinators to schedule local school/district science fairs no later than Friday, February 21, 2014.

The Mendocino County Office of Education appreciates the support of the school/district science fair coordinators and/or teachers who help encourage students in developing their science project. We also would like to thank the volunteer judges and helpers in our community for their time and effort in supporting this event.
For Students and Parents/Guardians
Students enrolled in grades 3 through 12 and who have placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in their grade level (or have qualified by some other means designated by their school or district) may enter the fair. The grade levels are separated into divisions and categories, and students compete for medals/ribbons within their respective areas.
The Mendocino County Office of Education has prepared a Science Fair Student Handbook to provide students with a guideline while working on a science project. Students are encouraged to read the handbook as it includes project ideas, research methods, and instructions for creating your display. For more ideas on your science project, please refer to the Resources below.
Please note: Representatives of the Mendocino County Office of Education will photograph the Mendocino County Science Fair. All students participating in the event must have a completed photo release on file with the MCOE. The School Science Fair Coordinator, Teacher, and/or Designee must submit the completed forms to MCOE by the date indicated on the form.
Representatives from the California Association of Professional Scientists will present one award to a student in 7th-11th grade for overall outstanding project in any category. The winner is eligible to compete for CAPS statewide Outstanding Young Scientist Award.
Here are a few quick links from the Science Fair Student Handbook:
