Win a $200 Best Buy Gift Card!

This year the SSTFI will be giving away a $200 Best Buy gift card for a school to use for their science/science fair program.  During the Grand Award Ceremony on Saturday evening we will draw a school’s name from the cards entered into the drawing.

How does your school earn cards?

Encourage past participants, school alumni, parents and chaperones attending the 2011 SSTFI from your school or supporting your program to volunteer/or attend in the following areas:
Assist as an SRC Reviewer (Friday am) – this earns a school triple cards!
Assist as a DSC Reviewer (Friday am) – this earns a school triple cards!
Attend the SRC Workshop (Saturday am)
Attend the Open Forum (Saturday am)
Assist as an SSTFI Judge – this earns a school double cards!
Assist as an SSTFI Volunteer – this earns a school 1 card per 2 hour shift!
