On November 16, the West Virginia Science and Art Fair will be held for middle and high school students at West Virginia University Institute of Technology in Montgomery. 

The fair will provide students in 22 West Virginia counties with opportunities to showcase their knowledge of biology and physical sciences in display projects, a symposium, Olympiad events and art projects.

Students may enter several competition categories that include investigatory projects, display projects, symposium, Olympiad events and art exhibits.

The fair is being hosted by WVU Tech, West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History.  Registration is open to public, private and home-school students.   

"We are pleased to be partnering with the Higher Education Policy Commission and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History on this program," said Carolyn Long, WVU Tech Campus Executive Officer.  "This program will encourage students to explore new areas of research and challenge them to develop creative projects that will illustrate what they are learning."

"For students in high school and middle school, the opportunity to exhibit their scientific work brings with it a great sense of pride -- and a deepened love of learning in these essential fields.  The Science and Art Fair is an exciting new venture designed to do just that, and the Commission is thrilled to work with the Division of Culture and History and WVU Tech to make it a reality," said Paul L. Hill, Chancellor of the Higher Education Policy Commission.
