There are 38 categories for student exhibits, Junior or Senior Division.  Preliminary interviews with all students, in each category, will determine the semi-finalists; second-round interviews, along with judging team deliberation, will lead to the selection of 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place and Honorable Mention winners. Judging for Special Awards will also take place on Friday, March 18th, between student interviews.
