I is 3rd and 4th grade Students may enter more than one category, but may have only one project per category. Students may enter an individual project AND be part of a group project within a single category. Students can compete in a groups

of no more than 2. All projects need to be saved on a USB jump drive (flash drive) All files, pictures, video clips, music, etc. will also need to be saved on that jump drive Windows Movie Maker is VERY tricky sometimes if you try to create a project on a computer and copy it

to a jump driveit is best to begin the project by saving everything to the jump drive. That way everything will pull up wherever you are! We will have space available for you to set-up a laptop if your project requires a certain program that we would not have at school.

Otherwise, your child will show their project to the judges by inserting their jump drive into a computer in the library. There will be practice times available the week before the fair for students to bring their projects and make sure they pull up without glitches.

A project notebook must accompany every project. There are details on the website and the handout. We will do the notebooks after the school fair. http://oesteckees.weebly.com/ Friday, January 20th
