The AVRSF is a nonprofit and all volunteer operation. For more information, please use the navigation menu on the left. For information or inquiries not addressed on these pages please contact the AVRSF Co-Directors, Dol Khanal or Warren McClure at

All of the judges for the fair are all La Junta area professionals, OJC faculty, and a few K-12 area science teachers who are not sponsoring science fair participants. These individuals volunteer their time and expertise and are an essential component to the fair's success. The judges decisions are final and not open for discussion or disclosure. Also, keep in mind that science fair participants will not receive an award by default. Placement awards are earned based on the individuals project's merit within their Class.

Class I - K-2
Class II - 3-5
Class III - 6-8
Class IV - 9-12
