In its 33rd year, the Hillsborough Regional STEM Fair (formerly the Hillsborough Regional Science and Engineering Fair) features more than 2,000 students representing public and private schools throughout Hillsborough County, and encourages students to pursue STEM careers.

Judges will interview students during Tuesday’s closed judging.  Judges familiar with the category in which the project is entered will assess the projects several times.  The awards for both divisions will be made during the Wednesday evening ceremonies.  Winners will represent Hillsborough County at the 58th annual State Science & Engineering Fair of Florida from March 26 through 28, at the Lakeland Center in Lakeland, Fla.  Contact the communications office to make arrangements for access during judging.
