Louisiana Region V Science and Engineering Fair is an
organization dedicated to the promotion of science
experimentation in grades 4-12. It is
affiliated with the Louisiana
Science & Engineering Fair (LSU - Baton Rouge)
as well as the Intel
International Science & Engineering Fair. We serve
over 60 schools, public, private, and home, in a
six-parish area - Calcasieu,
are over 300 elementary, junior,
and senior students that enter
the regional competition. Junior and Senior place winners from this level
progress onto state competition with Senior Division winners having
a chance at international competition. The
Region 5 Fair sponsors included 20th
Century Fox, Sasol North America, McNeese
TRU Solutions Inc.

Fox Louisiana. There are also
numerous college, public, and private school educators that
volunteer to help make each year a success. "Volunteer"
is the scientific word. All positions associated with the Fair
are volunteer, even mine. Funds
that are generated via sponsors, registration
fees, and t-shirt sales are used to purchase such items as paper for
mailings, judging materials, ISEF affiliation fees, awards for students, a trip to the
Intel International Science Fair for the Overall Winner and his / her adult
sponsor, and other miscellaneous operating supplies.
(Providing funds are available, the "Best of Senior Division" winning
project will also receive a sponsored trip to the ISEF)
