The competition ranges from fourth to twelfth grade and will also serve as a showcase for experiments in and displays in chemistry, physics, and medicine.

School spokesman David Helm says the best projects have chance to go even further.

"If they're an award winner at our fair they they move on to the regional level, then on to the state and national level," Helm told WUKY.  "Every year, we have students who do progress that far out of our district fair.  It's kind of a nice thing.  Last year we had, I think, five or six students at the national fair out in Arizona.  There's definitely an opportunity to advance," Helm said.

Weather permitting, the fair, sponsored by Kentucky American Water, takes place Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. at Bryan Station High School.  Judging is from 9 to noon.  Awards will be announced at 3 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.
