From: Elmira Star-Gazette - Elmira,NY,USA - Jan 30, 2006

Students with hearing loss in sixth- through eleventh-grades may compete in the Rochester Institute of Technology's new National Science Fair for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students, which awards prizes of up to $500.

Students may compete individually or as a two- or three-person team and should submit their most interesting and challenging science project. To qualify, students must submit an entry form and a 250-word project summary.

From those summaries, judges will choose finalists in both middle school and high school divisions, who will be invited to attend the Science Fair April 28-29 at RIT's Rochester campus to display their project and compete for first, second or third place in each division.

For an entry form, acceptance criteria, display regulations, and a schedule of activities at the fair, visit . The deadline is Feb. 15.
