From zFairs Contest Management

Running a Science Fair, History Day Contest, Invention Convention, or any other type of Fair, Contest, or Competition has never been easier. The zFairs platform takes a lot of the management headache out of the equation and lets you focus more on the Participants and Judges you will be working with.
