About the Texaco Poster Contest

For the last 20 years, the Annual Texaco Poster Contest has become a State Science Fair tradition. Each Science Fair season, students from grades 6-12 may submit a poster with the selected theme. Students do not need to be science fair participants to enter. A panel of professional judges, with backgrounds in graphic design, textiles, media and/or art come together to select the Top 3 posters from each division. The top winners are awarded cash prizes. The winning poster is featured on the cover of the Hawaii State Science & Engineering Fair program the following year.
