Science Fairs at Ohio State Marion

The safety of the Marion campus and our community is our highest priority.

Using the guidance of public health experts about coronavirus (COVID-19), The Ohio State University is taking a proactive approach to protect the health and well-being of the university community. Announced guidelines state that no new, non-essential events will be currently scheduled on our campuses.

The Science Fair for 2022 will be an all virtual event. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


The North Central District Science Day and the Marion Area Science & Engineering Fair promotes science awareness and encourages science innovation in North Central Ohio students. North Central District Science Day (a program of the Junior Academy of The Ohio Academy of Science) is held in conjunction with The Marion Area Science & Engineering Fair (affiliated with the Society for Science & the Public) at the Alber Student Center of The Ohio State University at Marion.

Each year participants compete for >40 special awards, $4,500 in Ohio State Marion Scholarships, and $1000 in B-WISER institute scholarships.
