STANYS Science Congress Results

STANYS State Science Congress Results

Over the years Regional science fairs were encouraged in STANYS Sections across the State, and a number of Sections have continued this tradition to today. Students with outstanding projects are selected to participate in the state level event, Science Congress, held at a host institution in late May or early June. The event is organized by a Section for two or more years and is then passed on to volunteers from another Section.

The students present their research orally to judges, community observers, and other students in a lecture format. They are judged on the quality of their work, as revealed by their written and oral presentations. Recognition is earned as Highest Honors, High Honors, Honors, and Honorable Mention.







We are proud to present the Science Congress awardees for 2017.
