Exhibit Guidelines

Score Cards

Advancing to the State Fair

  • No, STEM projects are county-only and only eligible for exhibition at the Marion County Showcase.

Cloverbuds (Grades K-2)



  • Choose any STEM topic you like and create a poster or notebook.
  • A reference list must be included with your poster or notebook.
  • Cloverbud projects are for exhibition only (not judged), so there are no score cards, and exhibits are not eligible to advance to the State Fair.
