Is Your Kid The Smartest In The Class?
If your kid is interested in science, robots and the kinds of things that make technology this is for you! The 15th Annual Angelina County Science & Tech Fair is an annual event that allows 6th-12th graders to compete in science and technology-related competitions. The event is a project of the Leadership Lufkin class and relies on sponsors and volunteers to be successful.
A $1,000 scholarship will be available to a qualified graduating senior who is enrolling in a college, university, or trade school beginning in the summer or fall semester immediately following the award of the scholarship. The recipient must be participating in either the Life Science and/or Invention competition. If the recipient is a team, each of the two team members will receive a $500 scholarship. For more details, see the Scholarship Criteria above.
$500 will be available to a competing junior in high school that is selected as “Judge’s Choice”!
There will also be medallions, certificates, and gift cards for 1st ($120), 2nd ($80), and 3rd ($60) places. Teams of two will each receive one half of the amount. Honorable Mention will receive a medallion and a certificate.
