Advancing to the State Competition
Since the regional fairs have a large degree of independence, competition at the state level has additional rules and restrictions, as well as a separate registration process and fee. For more information, see the State Fair website:
  • For entries in the six project categories, the top two individual winners and top two group winners, in each category, qualify to advance to state.
  • For the I.T. Technology Test, the top two winners qualify to advance to state.
  • For the Team Programming Challenge, the top placed team qualifies to advance to state. The second place team will advance if the first place team cannot attend.
  • The State ACTE Fair will be held at the Montgomery Performing Arts Center on April 28 and 29.
