County and State Science Fairs

The Brain Research Institute sponsors awards at both the Los Angeles County and California State Science Fairs for outstanding projects in neuroscience.  At the county science fair, two special award winners, one from the Junior Division and one from the Senior Division are selected by one or more judges from UCLA and the awards are presented at the awards ceremony at the conclusion of the science fair.  At the state science fair, three special awards (first, second, and third place) in both the Junior and Senior Divisions are presented.  Project posters are reviewed by a panel of judges from the Brain Research Institute and the awards are presented at the conclusion of the poster session (2nd and 3rd place) or in the Division awards ceremonies (1st place) at the conclusion of the science fair. Each award winner receives a certificate and a cash prize in celebration of their achievement.
