                               Hypothesis states what the student “thinks” will happen.
3. Materials Stated            All materials used are listed.
                               Specific quantities stated, if applicable.
4. Procedure Stated            Steps are logical and in sequential order.
                               The experiment was set up to be replicated for reliability.
5. Results Stated              Results are organized with a table, chart or graph.

Other Points Worth Noting:
   3rd Graders will continue to participate in the interview process.
   We will continue to have collaborative judging. Teachers will be assigned to judge
    categories where their school has no entrants.
   Some of the categories have been consolidated for the Pre-K through 5th grade.
    See below for a list of the categories according to which the projects will be
    grouped and evaluated.
