Project Fair is CAPE's version of a Science Fair without limiting it to just Science! Project Fair is a fun event where students research any (God-honoring) subject they are interested in and make a visual display and presentation to showcase to peers, judges, friends and family. Students can start a brand new study, expand on a topic they studied this year, or showcase an activity/hobby they participate in. Project Fair is open to all homeschool families.

Project fair benefits students by giving them the opportunity to practice oral presentation skills by speaking to many people, develop research skills by utilizing many resources and/or learning to conduct an interview, use their God-gifted creativity to plan an interesting display for their project, and to meet others who share their interests.

Students will have a chance to win CASH PRIZES for their projects. Each division will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize winner.

Divisions:

Pre-K-3rd 4th-7th 8th-12th

(Divisions may be adjusted slightly depending on registrations)

Important Details to Note

  • BE ON TIME. Students have a 30-minute window to set up their display and eat before they need to BE AT THEIR DISPLAY for judging at 6:00pm. Plan to visit other displays before or after judging begins.
  • Your display should be no more than 3'x3' in size. You will be sharing a table space with one other student.
  • If your project is messy or involves any water, make sure you are bringing items to protect the table and floor around your project. Also plan to take extra care to clean up well.
  • If you will need power for your display, please bring your own extension cord and indicate it on your registration so that we keep your project away from any projects with water.
  • To be considered for cash prizes, all students 4-12th grade MUST submit a minimum of a one-page written description/report of your project to be presented to the judges along with your visual display.
  • All students should have three "Ask Me" questions displayed to prompt interaction from judges/guests as they look at your display.
