Tech Fairs begin set up at 8:00am and conclude by 12:00pm. 

ITEC sponsors three regional student technology fairs each spring. The technology fairs offer K-12 students an opportunity to showcase technology-based projects created as part of their instructional curriculum in their schools.

Almost 300 projects will be presented statewide. The projects span eight different categories including web presence, programming, video/linear presentation, graphics/publishing, 3-D rendering/non-linear animation, music/sound design, mobile apps, and innovative technology use.

Each project is reviewed by local judges and those students receiving purple ribbon awards are invited to showcase their project at the ITEC conference in October.

Registration fee is $10 per participant. Sponsors may choose to attend the fair that is the most convenient for your school. There is limited space at the tech fairs, so all projects must be registered and finalized by April 15, 2015.

Learn what the Tech Fair is all about! Judging is a great way to 'preview' the fair to see if it's something you want your students to participate in. It's also a great way for industry leaders to interact with students. No experience necessary! To be a volunteer judge for a tech fair, please sign up here.
