VIRTUAL district SCIENCE DAY 2021-2022 Announcement

For the 2021-2022 school year, plans include a return to 17 separate DSD registration sites which will be administered by each respective District Council. Milestone requirements must align with the State Science Day site to facilitate a seamless transfer of registration data of promoted projects. These sites will be designed to allow each District to decide whether to provide in-person judging only, in-person of most projects with virtual judging for students unable to physically attend (hybrid approach), or virtual judging only. Regardless of the District’s choice, all projects must be registered on-line and all milestones must be completed. If a District is unable to provide any form of District Science Day, students from that District may participate in a separate virtually judged District Science Day administered by the OAS office, to be known as “District 18”.

Note: Students who prefer to participate virtually may do so through District 18 and need to register through District 18 (registration fee is $25 per person). Students participating virtually are not eligible to receive sponsored awards.

Northwest Ohio District 2 VIRTUAL Science Day (NWDSD) is the regional science fair for students in grades 5-12 in schools of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Lucas,  Ottawa, Sandusky,  Williams and Wood counties. Students who enter District Science Day are usually the winners from science fairs held locally at their own school, county or school district. Projects that have followed Ohio Academy of Science standards from students who come from schools where local science fairs are not held are also welcome providing you contact the Director for special permission.

The Junior Academy Council of the Ohio Academy of Science (OAS) governs NWDSD; one of 17 science districts in the state. The OAS is a nonprofit organization founded to stimulate interest in the sciences, to promote research, to improve instruction in the sciences, to disseminate scientific knowledge, and to recognize high achievements in attaining these objectives.

The NWDSD Council, chaired by Mark J. Camp from the University of Toledo, organizes this important event. Members of the Council include teachers representing the counties of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Williams and Wood. We encourage teachers to join us on this committee. If you are interested, call Director, Mark J. Camp, at 419-530-2398 or e-mail at
