Young scientists from throughout the region will attend the Southeastern Minnesota Regional Science Fair on March 1 at Saint Mary's University of Winona.

Students will present their science research projects and papers and compete for awards and prizes. Top awards include a chance to compete at the state science fair and at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Louisville, Ky., in May for more than $2 million in awards and scholarships.

The top research paper will be chosen to compete at the Tri-State Regional Science and Humanities Symposium next fall in St. Paul. Winners will be announced during an awards ceremony at 7 p.m. in the Saint Mary's University gym.
