CONTEST. The Georgia Science Engineering Fair is one of a number of learning experiences that help young people meet the challenges of the future. It provides a stage from which the junior high and high school students of Georgia can demonstrate their serious contributions to the advancement of society. By participating in the fair, students learn how to isolate, attack and solve important problems, all within the framework of organized, logical thought and study. Local science fairs provide the initial opportunity for students to exhibit their research projects. If the projects show merit, they may be entered in a district fair. First as well as some second place winners in district fairs are eligible for an invitation to compete in the GSEF. At all of these fairs,the student's work is judged by professional scientists who look not only for an attractive functional presentation, but more importantly, for new information the work has contributed and for the student's basic understanding of the research.
