General Notes –All items attached to the display board must be attached by either using tape or glue. No metal fasteners ie. staples, pins, or clasps are allowed.

The student may attach the abstract directly to the display board or may displayed it in a plastic free- standing frame.
Science Project Display Area General Notes –No non-functional apparatus or containers, empty or otherwise may be displayed. –No glass is allowed except computer monitors, television screens, and shielded fluorescent lights. No unsecured glass of any kind, (i.e. lenses, glass containers, thermometers, gauges, etc.) No pictures frames unless they are acrylic. –Extraneous use of electricity will not be allowed at either the PRSEF or the SSEF. i.e. use of electricity merely for lights.
