What is the CS Fair?
The CS Fair is a UVM event where Computer Science students (majors, minors or just taking a class) may submit and showcase their computer projects. The purpose of the CS Fair is to give students a chance to present their work to their peers and professionals in an open and exciting environment. A panel of judges critique the student work where the prize amounts are up to $300 with many opportunities to win. This year the CS Fair will take place in the Davis Center in the Grand Maple Ballroom.

Prizes & Judging
Prizes are picked by a team of judges for each category. Student projects will be interspersed throughout the room but will be given a color code so a judge can easily identify which project to judge. The people's choice award goes to the projects with the most votes.
Prizes are picked each hour via a random number generator. A winner will be selected for each hour, you must be present to claim your prize.
