We certify that this research has been conducted by the student in accordance with the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science rules and with advice only from others.  PJAS at the regional and the state level utilizes judges from the area surrounding the competition site.  The Regional and State competitions are held at a central location on a single day.  In that the presenters, judges, and support personnel converge on the specific venues on a specific date, certain restrictions must apply.  First, all presentations must take place on that day and on that site.  Secondly, the results are deemed final. There cannot be “rejudging” of any presentations.  Judges are polled before submitting their final results to ensure that the scores and the awards are acceptable to the entire judging panel.  If there is a disagreement, it must be rectified before the judges’ final submission.  Once the judging panel is released the score and award is final. The large number of participants competing across the state will undoubtedly produce some results that are not expected.   PJAS tries to make the evaluations as objective as possible. Using specifically designed rubrics along with orientation of judges, our judging committees do an exceptional job to ensure a fair result. We further agree to accept the Judge’s evaluation of this research as final.  In addition, we agree to make every attempt to have the student present at the Region 4 Competition and at the State Competition should he/she receive a First Award at the Region 4 Competition.
