Notes on Awards:
In order to protect the judges, scores of all projects are kept confidential during, and after, the WVSSEF. No scores will be released following the WVSSEF.
Sponsor funding has provided the opportunity for one Grand-Prize Winner (or winning team) to be selected to advance to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, Arizona on May 12-17, 2013. This will include ground transportation and lodging for the participant at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown (or participants in the case of team winners) and one (1) chaperon. The chaperon is to be the adult academic advisor of the winning participant(s). All transportation and lodging arrangements will be made by the College of Science & Technology; all transportation and lodging arrangements made by outside parties without the consent of the College will not be reimbursed. All other expenses (ground transportation and display shipping) will be reimbursed after proof of proper documentation.
All other awards will be in the form of a certificate.
There are thirteen (13) categories for entries. It is very important that students select the appropriate category for their projects. Project categories may not be changed from the category listed on the WVSSEF application once the project arrives at the WVSSEF. The projects must be in one of the following areas:
