Ohio District 13 Science Day

The University of Mount Union is proud to be the host for the annual Ohio District 13 Science Day! Science Day 2019 will be held on Saturday, March 16 in Bracy Hall.

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 receive 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!


Science Day Check-in and Set-up

Participants should arrive between 7:30 am - 8:30 am to check-in and set up their projects at the University of Mount Union, Bracy Hall. Judging will begin promptly at 8:45 am through 11:45 am

Early Judging Students
Only students who have submitted early judging forms, will be allowed to be judged early. The Early Judging Form was to be submitted by teachers by the due date listed. The forms were emailed to all teachers multiple times before the due date.  Early judging participants should arrive between 7:30am-8 am for check-in and project set up. Early Judging will go from 8 am - 8:45 am. Students should take their projects after they are judged or should have someone remove them from the early judging room by 2:30 pm Saturday, March 16, 2019.

*If we never received students' early judging forms from teachers by the deadline, students will not be judged early. No exceptions.

Weather/Snow Cancellation: It is highly unlikely we will cancel the Ohio District 13 Science Day due to the weather. We will make the decision and post on our website by Thursday, March 14 at 5 p.m. If there is no posting, it means the Ohio District 13 Science Day will proceed as scheduled for Saturday, March 16, 2019.
