Aims and Objectives of the Policy and Procedure Manual

The primary aim of this manual is to communicate the information needed by the student and sponsor so that a safe and humane experimental project or paper is presented at the Area and state expositions. Please read this manual carefully and resolve any questions before you enter a project or paper.

While the Illinois Junior Academy of Science would like for all schools and regions to follow all rules, regulations, and guidelines of the state organization, it does not have the power to enforce these policies at the school or regional level. However, the Illinois Junior Academy of Science will insist that all projects and papers entered into state competition meet ALL of the rules, regulations, and guidelines of the Illinois Junior Academy of Science.

Projects that are sent to the State Science Exposition that do not meet the rules, regulations, and guidelines of the Illinois Junior Academy of Science will be disqualified.

The Board of Directors of the Illinois Junior Academy of Science will allow no exceptions to the rules and guidelines as stated in this guidebook.

Safety rules are not meant to be barriers to progress that have been arbitrarily imposed to make it difficult for students to present a project. The objective of the manual is to provide guidelines and procedures that are designed for the safety of the experimenter, as well as the safety of those that will judge and/or view the project.
