Welcome to District 13 Science Day!!

Science Day Saturday March 7, 2015!

The University of Mount Union is proud to be the host for the annual Ohio District 13 Science Day!

Ohio District 13 Science Fair is one of 17 District Science Fairs in Ohio and is governed by the Junior Academy of the Ohio Academy of Science. Our District Council is responsible for the organization of this fair each year. This fair is open to 5th*-12th graders from the following counties: Carroll, Stark, and Tuscarawas. Students must receieve a Superior rating at their local science fair in order to compete at the District level.

*5th and 6th graders may compete at the District level; however, they may only proceed to the State level if the District 13 quota is not filled by 7th-12th graders. Any student wishing to compete at the State level must receive a Superior rating at the District level.

All participants are still required to use the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair forms, as those are the forms the Ohio Academy of Science requires for participation in Local, District, and State Science Days!

The District 13 Science Day is affiliated with Broadcom Masters again for 2014-15, where the top 10% of 6th-8th grader projects at District 13 Science Day advance to compete in Broadcom Masters.
