Students in grades 6-12 who have a hearing loss can compete in Rochester Institute of Technology’s third annual National Science Fair for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students and win cash awards of up to $500.

Students can compete individually or as a 2- or 3-person team and should submit their most interesting and challenging science project. To qualify, students must submit an entry form and a 250-word science project summary. From those summaries, judges will choose finalists in both middle school and high school divisions, who will be invited to attend the Science Fair March 14-15, 2008 at RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf in Rochester, NY, to display their project and compete for first, second, or third place in each division.

For an entry form, competition rules, acceptance criteria, and a schedule of activities at the fair, click here. The deadline to submit project summaries is January 15, 2008.
