The Agriscience Fair program is aimed at providing opportunities for experiential learning in a specific subject matter. Ohio operates on a pre-qualifying system, similar to the National Agriscience Fair process.

    • 7th and 8th grade division (teams and individuals)
    • 9th and 10th grade division (teams and individuals)
    • 11th and 12th grade division (teams and individuals)
    • Categories are Animal Systems, Environmental Services/Natural Resources Systems, Food Products and Processing Systems, Plant Systems, Power, Structural and Technical Systems, and Social Systems

Report Pre-Qualifying – Reports due electronically by 6:00 pm on March 8, 2024
Using the AET Application Center, students must use the “Complete/Print Your App” screen to generate the PDF with a version number for the teacher to select and submit to state evaluation (see the resource guide for more information or reach out to Jena Kemmerer).

    • The Top 4 projects with a minimum score of 45 points from each category/division will be interviewed to determine final placings
    • The finalists in each division will be posted March 19, 2024
    • National will require their report template be used (NOT required for Ohio, with the understanding that this report will have to be edited if a state winner). Report template(s) found here:
