Competitive Event Descriptions

The complete competitive event descriptions will be available to you after your chapter affiliates and pays dues.  These descriptions have general rules in the first part of the guide that all students must follow for their events, e.g. dress, number of team members.  Specific rules for the event follow – read through these very carefully and be sure your students’ work fits the given criteria. There are also copies of the rubric that will be used to judge the event which can be very helpful as the students work on the projects through the year.

Some events will have a different theme each year.  Yearly themes are not published in the event guide, but are posted on the national website at the following link:

Be sure to look at the correct project level (middle school or high school) when looking for event themes.
