Plans are underway for the 51st annual CCISD Science Fair to be held Monday, January 23, 2012 from noon until about 5:00.  With more than 800 projects qualifying for the District Fair, almost 200 judges are needed. 

Each year, every campus holds a Science fairs within the Clear Creek Independent School District, with approximately 8,000 students participating.  The District Science Fair brings together the best of the projects from each of the school fairs. 

Awards are given in 4th grade division, 5th grade division, junior division (grades 7 – 8), 9th grade division, senior division (grades 10 – 12), and team divisions (grades 7-8, grade 9, and senior).  Clear Creek ISD’s science fair is one of the most extensive in the state, and students consistently take top honors at the Houston (regional), state, and international   science fairs.  Much success can be attributed to the quality of judges at the district fair.
