Students who enter the Alaska Science & Engineering Fair have many opportunities to win a wide range of awards. The Alaska Science & Engineering Fair sponsors the Main Category Awards.
One set of Main Category awards for Middle School (grades 7-8) and one set of Main Category awards for Senior High (grades 9-12) are given in the following categories (see middle and senior high judging rubric):
Detailed descriptions of these categories may be found on the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair website: http://www.societyforscience.org/isef/project_categories
There are also main category prizes for the Grades K-6. Elementary projects are judged a little differently from the higher grades (see Elementary judging rubric).
