Students and Teachers - Please review this page.
 
Thank You's
"Thank You" notes from students and teachers - Each team should prepare a "Thank You" note (on paper) for the sponsor of their prize and/or sponsors in general. Each September, I go hat in hand to our sponsors for funding. Funding decisions are made by ordinary individuals (not a faceless corporation) and you would be surprised of the importance of a simple "Thank You."
Send it to me and I will forward the "Thank You" to the appropriate person.

Errors


Judging Errors - WIth 500 projects to review, it is entirely possible there have been some worthy projects overlooked or placed in an incorrect award category. If you have any questions or concerns contact me via email and please include the userid and/or the project number along with the teacher's name (if it is your project). larry@virtualsciencefair.com
I will respond within a couple days.
   Please include:

    1) Your userid or project number.
    2) Your teacher's name and school (if it is your project).

Judging Margin of Error - There is likely a margin of error in judging of + or - one award level.

Posting Errors - I have made every effort to post the results accurately, but if any errors exist in the online version of the results, they will be corrected in accordance with the official copy in my office.

Why didn't I receive a higher award? If you are asking yourself this question complete the following steps before contacting me regarding a Judging Error .
   1)
Look over the projects in your award level as well as the projects in one level above and below your level. How do they compare to your project?
   2) Review carefully the Do's and Don'ts.
   3) Review the website checklist.
   4) Look over the Judging Comments in the VSF Blog
