Judges have pointed out some errors in the original award announcement. We apologize for any inconvenience the corrections will make.
Due to a printing error, the Entry Program was unavailable last week during the Fair. It's posted below as it would have appeared.
Our 2013 grand prize winners were Adam Bowman and Jacob M. Smith. They were given an all expense paid trip by APSU to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, AX during May 12 - 17.
The Middle TN Science and Engineering Fair (MTSEF) is sponsored by Austin Peay State University and is affiliated with the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). The goal of MTSEF is to provide a forum for middle and high school students of the Middle TN region to exhibit their scientific and engineering project to the public. Projects are also considered for awards in various scientific and engineering categories by MTSEF-selected judges, and by local, national, and international sponsors. Up to two Grand Prizes may be awarded at each MTSEF, contingent on our yearly re-affiliation with the ISEF. These Grand Prize winners are sent to compete in the ISEF, which is typically held in May of each year. Expenses for Grand Prize Winners are paid by Austin Peay State University. While MTSEF allows students from grades 6-12 to participate, Grand Prize winners must be from grades 9-12. MTSEF and ISEF accept team projects.
As an affiliated fair of ISEF, we require that projects adhere to ISEF regulations. These regulations mandate that proper care must be taken to insure the safety of the student researcher, any human subjects, and the public, as well as proper treatment of vertebrate animals that are used in experimental studies. Students must work under the guidance of an adult sponsor (typically a teacher), and possibly other specialists depending on the nature of the student's project.
This site will always be in development. Come back often!
