*A computer fair participation packet MUST be completed for all projects!
Entries will be limited to two projects per category per school totaling no more than 12 projects per school.
Students may work individually or in groups but each group must designate a captain as spokesperson for the project. Groups may consist of no more than three students.
Live internet connections are not guaranteed at the regional level.
All entries must designate a faculty member or sponsor. All communication will go through that person. The faculty member or sponsor must accompany students to the regional and state competitions.
There will be no entrance fee charged to either the school district or student to participate.
Narrative descriptions are required for all projects; the narrative description/project summary is now included in the PA Computer Fair Participation Packet. If the narrative is not provided, the project will be disqualified. Narratives must be detailed enough to provide the judges with any information to fairly judge the project. Attach additional pages if necessary.
The Pennsylvania Computer Fair, although educational, removes the student work from the classroom and therefore requires the student to get permission from the owner to use any copyrighted music, video, graphics, etc. Fair use does NOT apply. Remember to credit music or items that were created by yourself or friends as well.
Display boards or other items that are included with, but not part of, the project may not contain copyrighted material. Display boards are not judged for appearance, however, they will be inspected and can cause the project to be disqualified if copyrighted material is found.
The Copyright Signoff form, Project Narrative/Summary, and Photo Release form must be combined into one file for your convenience (Computer Fair Participation Packet). This completed packet MUST accompany every project. Click here to download.
First, second, and third place winners in each category at each level (MS/HS) will receive trophies. All participants will receive a participation certificate. First place winners will advance to the PA State Computer Fair held at Dickinson College in May!
