DPS Links

Below are some links from DPS that could be helpful during the creation of your science fair project. The only form that is necessary is the DISPLAY BOARD LABEL, that needs to be attached to the BACK of your project board: upper left corner. This file can be printed from the guideline packet below. There will also be some at the schools front office. The judging rubric (also below) is a nice way to see how our judges and the districts will score the projects.
