Our 50th year finished with a "Clean Sweep'" at the 2017 International Science & Engineering Fair with both of our Finalists Placing in their respective categories- Yatin Chandar, Davidson Academy with a 3rd place in Translational Medicine Category winner and Oliver Leiter, Davidson Academy with a 2nd place in Energy, Physical Science Category.

In 2017 we only had 127 projects with 8 high school projects  and only 26 schools participating – THAT IS A 75% DECREASE IN SCHOOLS ENTERING SCIENCE FAIR since 2010.

Just looking at last years participation to this year's participation, we had a 23% decrease in projects with a 78% decrease in high school participation.

With these trends, the Officers of Nevada Science Fair, Inc. have voted UNANIMOUSLY to DISSOLVE.

There will not be a Western Nevada Regional Science & Engineering Fair this year or in the future.
