About the Event
1) The REACH "Geography Fair" is broken into two judging categories. One category is for students in 3rd-5th grade. The second category is for students in 6-8th grade.
2) Although parents may help their student with research, the student is expected to create their display by themselves.
3) The registration fee to participate is $5. This fee is non-refundable!
4) Students may choose to work alone, or with a partner. If a student chooses to work with a partner, only one student needs to register, and only one $5 registration fee is required. The partner’s name may be listed on the registration form. Please note: if a student chooses to work with a partner, both students must be in the SAME judging category! The two judging categories are 3-5th grade and 6-8th grade.
5) Participants may register for either the 10:00-12:00, or 1:00-3:00 time slot. The event location will be closed from 12:00-1:00 to be sterilized.
6) At this time, masks are required, and we are not permitting students to share/sample foods from different countries. If state COVID-19 guidelines change, we will update this event policy. All display tables will be spaced 6-feet apart to allow for social distancing.
7) When registering, students should list for their top two country choices. If a student's first country has already been selected, they will be given their second country choice.
8) Students should create an informative display to place of their table and to share. Additional decor and dressing in the country’s attire are optional, although encouraged. During the event, judges will visit each table. Students should have a 3-5 minute presentation prepared to share with the judges.
9) The judges will convene at the end of the day. Winners will be announced for the two judging categories: 3-5th grade and 6-8th grade via Facebook and email. Checks will be awarded and mailed to the winners.
10) Prizes: 1st place-$30, 2nd place-$20, 3rd place-$10. If a student and his/her partner win a prize, they must split the prize money evenly.
