Support the Maine State Science Fair

Your gift rewards Maine students and encourages them to pursue their science and engineering aspirations.

Maine State Science Fair

The Maine State Science Fair welcomes all Maine high school students to present their original science or engineering project to an audience of their peers and Maine STEM professionals. With support from generous sponsors, The Jackson Laboratory and the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance are able to offer the Maine State Science Fair, without fee, to all participating students. Your gift allows us to continue to do so.

This year, we are asking for your support.

Judges’ Award

We are requesting contributions from current or recent judges. Annual contributions will be pooled and awarded, in full, to the most deserving students at the Maine State Science Fair, as determined by the judges. All contributors will be recognized by name in the MSSF program. Contributions of $100 or more will be recognized from the podium, preceding the naming of the Judges’ Awardee.

Parents’ Contributions

JAX and MMSA are pleased to offer the Maine State Science Fair to all students, without fee, and plan to continue no-cost registration. We ask parents of current and former MSSF participants to support the program with their donation. All contributors will be recognized by name in the MSSF program.

Company Sponsorships

We welcome not only individual contributions, but also corporate support in the form of sponsorships. If your company would like to support the Maine State Science Fair, and be recognized as a sponsor, please contact Deb Kocsis (deb.kocsis@jax.org).
