2014 SLVRSF Highlights

Highlights of the San Luis Valley Regional

Science Fair for 2013-2014

Sixty-four years of Science Fair was celebrated in the SanLuisValley this past year. What an honorable history for an organization! Our Science Fair is one of the oldest in the country!

Our fair was again successful, thanks to wonderful sponsorship that allowed a middle school student to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, as a Student Observer.

This year several new contributors were acquired for sponsorship of different category or special awards.

There were a total of 314 projects with a total of 344 finalist participants at the 2014 Regional Fair.  .

20 SLV students received a total of 52 awards at the Colorado State Science Fair, placing sixth of all thirteen regional fairs.

Of the entries to the CSEF, 90% won an award. San Luis Valley students placed 4th by ranking winning Special Awards. The following are examples:

  • 14 of those students placed in the grand awards, totaling $1075.
  •  There were 26 different special awards given to our students, which had a total monetary amount of $2435 and also included other prizes.
  • AdamsStateUniversity awarded 3 scholarships to Valley students, which is equivalent to one-year tuition and fees, (approximately $15,000)
  • One student was awarded a $1,000 renewable undergraduate scholarship from Colorado School of Mines, renewable for up to 3 additional years.
  • One student was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to attend CSU -Ft. Collins, renewable for up to 3 additional years.
  • One student was awarded a $500 scholarship to attend the University of Colorado, Boulder.
  • Three middle school students were nominated to participate in the Broadcom Masters program.
  • One Teacher from the San Luis Valley was nominated and received the Lockheed Martin, CSEF Teacher of the year Award. The teacher nominated was: Ms. Loree Harvey, Monte Vista Middle School. This award was a $3000.00 classroom grant.

Board member Jody Oaks and Fair Director Lucy Adams were members of the Display and Safety Committee at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair held in Los Angeles, California.

 

The biggest accomplishment this year is our website. The site was designed by our work study student and one board member. We are now able to receive online student registrations for the fair.

Also on the website is a judge registration that is going to be used this year. Other information listed on the site includes: the SLV Regional Science Fair Board of Directors, Mission Statement, History, and other information.

New contributors and visitors to the site are able to view information on how to donate/contribute to the fair.

Additional support to the SLV Regional Science Fair can be given by using GoodSearch and GoodShop. Links may be found by visiting our website at:
