Toyota Supports 2014 Science And Engineering Fair of Metropolitan Detroit
Tri-County Schools Competition Celebrates 57th Year of Educational Excellence
Local Senior Grand Award winners will advance to the International Science & Engineering Fair in Los Angeles.
– Toyota will serve as a major sponsor of the
upcoming 2014 Science and Engineering Fair of Metropolitan
Detroit (SEFMD), an annual competition which honors some of
the brightest young minds in the tri-county area.
The Science and Engineering Fair of Metropolitan Detroit (SEFMD), in its 57th year of operation, is a non-profit organization established to give students in the tri-county area (Wayne, Oakland, Macomb counties) an opportunity to develop and exhibit science fair projects.
The competition is separated into two groups - junior division (6th, 7th and 8th grades) and senior division (9th - 12th grades). Students are judged within their respective categories (total of 13 categories based on scientific discipline). Up to six students (limit of one student per school in the senior division) and one team project (two or three students) may be selected to participate in the 2014 International Science and Engineering Fair.
The SEFMD is administered by a Board of Directors and the operations of the Fair are managed by an Operating Council. Both groups meet regularly to plan for the Fair. All members of the Board and the Operating Council are volunteers who give generously of their time, money and other resources. In addition, more than 500 people volunteer their time during the week of the Fair, including judging work, checking in projects, and assisting with public viewing and project removal.
