  2. PTA will provide FREE display boards to all who register. A sample layout template is providing on the back of this sheet.  Due to space constraints, we ask that you use the boards provided by the PTA so that we may effectively plan sufficient exhibit space.  Look for an announcement about display board pick-up prior to winter break.

*A parent or guardian must supervise children at all times.  We will not tolerate running or horseplay.


SAFETY NOTE: Many projects involve materials that may not be safely exhibit at the Fair, but are an important part of the experiment.  Please use good judgment—no animals, flames or chemicals may be brought into the building.  Instead, photographs of these important parts/phases can be used in your display.  Always do your experiment with adult supervision.
