Registration Limits

The fair is open to students in grades 4-12 in public, parochial or home-based schools in Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Greenup, and Lawrence Counties, KY as well as counties outside of the FIVCO region that do not have a district fair available to attend.

Each school may submit the following number of projects based on grade category:

  • Grade category 4-5; top TWO projects per school (within any category).
  • Grade category 6-8; top THREE projects per grade level per school (within any category).
  • Grade category 9-12; up to UNLIMITED projects per school (within any category).
  • Each home school may enter one project as an individual or team for fourth and fifth grade, three projects per each middle school grade (within any category), and unlimited projects in high school.
  • Determination of submitted projects will be made by those schools and not by the ACTC/FIVCO Planning Board. However, this planning board reserves the right to make adjustments as necessary.
