Scence Fair Forms

Please make sure that the students that are entered in the science fair categories have all of the necessary forms. There are several forms that are in the separate science fair manual that they do need, but do not use the JUDGING form from the science fair section. They need the science fair judging form from the 2012 competition manual. Please contact me if you have questions about this.
