Due to the effects of COVID-19. SEFH 2022 will require all participants to wear face masks throughout the event.
The SEFH planning committee will continue to monitor public health conditions in our region as the fair approaches and will keep you informed on any additional precautions or changes to our plans for the fair.
SEFH 2022 is currently planned as an in person event scheduled for Saturday February 26, 2022.
Please refer COVID-19 Policies and Recommendations
Each year more than 50 professional organizations, representing government, industry and education across a wide variety of scientific disciplines, affiliate with SEFH as Special Award Sponsors to provide awards from their respective organizations to the nearly 1000 students attending SEFH.
Special Award Agency (SAA) recruits their own judges to choose the winners of their awards. Please note that a judge cannot serve as both a special award judge and a grand award judge.
We recommend that each Special Award Organization provide a minimum of 3 judges, although the number of judges per organization varies with the scope of the awards to be given and the number of Finalists to be interviewed. Coordinators of Special Awards should keep in mind that judging at SEFH takes place over a relatively short period and a sufficient number of judges will make selecting winners a less arduous task.
Special Award Judges receive criteria and coordination instruction through the organization they are representing and its designated judging team leader. This team leader is responsible for establishing the final assignments of their judges.
