    1. Does the participant comprehend the Scientific Method?
    2. Is there evidence that the participant truly knows about the concepts being studied in their project?
    3. Is the project an innovative and creative approach to a problem/question?
    4. Appearance/neatness/clarity of the entry. 

    STATE QUALIFIERS: 

        • Each year the Kansas State Science and Engineering Fair Executive Board determines how many entries a regional fair can advance to state. In the past, this number has been 35 (thirty-five) projects from Division II and Division I as “State Qualifiers”.
        • Judges will determine which projects to advance to state competition. 
        • Additional projects will be designated as “Alternates” which will advance to the state fair in the event a State Qualifier is unable to attend. 
        • Judges may choose to award “honorable mention” awards for students whose projects were of very high quality, but did not score in the top of their division 
        • Additional “Special Awards” will be given to projects which demonstrate a special excellence (examples include- Best Use of Mathematics, Best Use of Photography, etc.) 

        ALTERNATES: 
            • “State Qualifier” projects must register and pay their entry fee to KSSEF no later than: 
            • If a “State Qualifier” cannot attend KSSEF, they should inform WRSEF staff AS SOON AS POSSIBLE in order to allow their alternate to attend in their place!
