The dates for the fair are as follows:
Saturday, February 24, 2018: Judging

To volunteer as a Judge representing the GSH, please contact Gokay Bozkurt at gbozkurt2002@yahoo.com.


This year marks the Fair's 58th year as a non-profit organization devoted to the enhancement of math and science education in junior and senior high schools. During the past 58 years, thousands of area students have benefited from our Fairs and we plan to be of greater service in the years to come. Our students need and deserve this kind of support and we invite you to get involved with these future scientists and engineers. Since no public funds are available for this activity, we rely on your financial support to continue this service. About 85% of our operating costs are paid with donations from area businesses, industries, professional societies, and foundations...
