Reviews will take place during the fair on March 13th, and all reviewed projects will receive one ribbon for each participant. Students do need to be near their posters for their allotted 20 mins, even if they get interviewed.
Reviewers are required to arrive at least 10 minutes ahead of the time slot they picked.
