COVID CONCERNS? VIRTUAL OPTIONS
The Ohio Academy of Science respects and is concerned for the health and welfare of all students interested in participating in Science Day. To accommodate those students who wish to participate but are uncomfortable with a live, in-person event, both District 8 and the Ohio Academy are creating virtual events. The District 8 virtual event is planned for the week of the in person event. Students within the OAS District 8 section are expected to attend the District 8 virtual event. You must express your interest to participate in the virtual event by completing this form no later than Feb. 21. REGISTRATION FOR THE VIRTUAL OPTION IS NOW CLOSED.
ELIGIBILITY AND REGULATIONS: District 8 Science Day is the district science fair for students in grades 5-12 attending schools of Fairfield, Licking, Pickaway and Perry counties. Students who enter District Science Day typically (but are not required to) have earned a superior rating at a local science day held at their school, school district or within their county. Projects that have followed Ohio Academy of Science standards from students who come from schools where local science fairs are not held are also welcome providing you contact the District council person for permission.
Rules and regulations for entries to this event, judging criteria and quotas for participation at State Science Day are regulated by the Junior Academy Council of the Ohio Academy of Science (OAS).
