they usually
They usually look for how accurrate your info is, how well you presented it, how complete it is(does this have the most relevent info possible) and how confident you are presenting it.

My teacher gave us a thingy that said what the judges were grading on, so I'll be typing up what it says:

- Looks or appearance and neatness
- Accuracy or how accurate your project was
- They look to see how many times you've tested it since most projects are supposed to be tested more than once
- World Effect or how your science fair project will effect the world

They also look for How much information u got, how did u do ur experiment, ur results, what did u prove. This is all I got.

Dude, I felt the same way when judges were heatin' up my grill....I never felt the same. All ya gotta do, is be nice, polite, and get your facts straight, Dawg. They might give ya extra points if ya tell 'em how hard and how long you've worked on the project! Always worked for me!

They also make sure that whether or whether not your hypothies is close to your results.

Here's some tips
Judges are really attracted to the board. If you have creativity, show it! Obviously, they would not like a board with black marker and cross outs on it. Oh, and DON"T LIE if they ask you questions. They always find out. If you got help from a parent, dont say u did it yourself because no one is perfect. It's the impression that you leave that counts.

lastly, they look at how much effort you put in your project, and if you worked alot...

They like orginal ideas. They get bored if they see the same volcano project over and over again-give them something that makes them think "Oh, I've never thought of that before-what an interesting idea":lightbulb:

that is...
totally correct...... io agree 100% wit rachealroxursox2

here are some judjing criterias
here are some things that judges look 4 in your project...


CREATIVE ABILITY: Is this an original idea or an original approach to a new idea? Both are good. Did you show ingenuity in the materials, apparatus and techniques or did you just buy a kit? Did you demonstrate the ability to improvise and adapt? Is the project a collection, is it a purposeful one?

SCIENTIFIC THOUGHT: Does your exhibit show: organized procedures, accurate observations, controlled experiments, cause and effect reasoning, theories, analysis and synthesis? Weight is given to the likely amount of real study and effort represented in the exhibit. The project cannot be just a demonstration or an attractive display.

THOROUGHNESS: How completely have you explored or studied the problem? You should record evidence you have gathered as data in notebooks, journals, or log books. Include bibliographies, charts, tables, and graphs. Be sure to identify experimental organisms and/or apparatus.

SKILL: Is your workmanship good? Do you show evidence of mastery of techniques? Did you construct your own apparatus? Overall construction and "look" of the project should be neat, organized, easy to read, sturdy, and self supporting.

CLARITY: Does the display clearly explain what you did? A neatly written, well organized backboard that is easy to follow provides clarity. Things which insure clarity are: labels, guide marks, well written descriptions, emphasis on important items, labeled graphs, labeled tables, legends underneath graphs and tables. Which of these does your display have?
