Kilgore College will host the 45th annual East Texas Regional Science Fair Thursday, March 6, in the Devall Student Center Ballroom on the KC campus.

Local fair winners from area schools (grades 5-12) have been invited to attend the competition.   The top individual project from the "senior division" and their sponsor will be awarded a trip to the 2008 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Atlanta, Ga., May 11-17. 

In addition, the top 10 percent of finishers in each of four categories will qualify to attend the Exxon-Mobil Science and Engineering Fair in San Antonio April 10-12.  The top 10 percent of junior projects (grades 5-8) will qualify for the Discovery Youth Scientist Award and will compete against other students from across the nation. 

Specialty awards will be given for projects in water, engineering, use of computers and environmental science.  The U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force will also award prizes.  Projects will be available for public viewing from 2 to 3:30 pm.
