On behalf of the students and teachers in Brevard, the Directors would like to thank participants for their continued support and dedication in making the Brevard Regional Fairs a success. Some of winning students move on to outperform students of other counties at the Florida state competition and other states/countries at the International level of competition. They could not achieve this level of success without the support of volunteer Judges.
