1. The fair coordinator (school or state) has the final decision on matters pertaining to the fair if these matters are not covered in fair regulations.
  2. Disqualification of projects not meeting the project rules is the responsibility of the fair coordinator(s).
  3. Any challenge at the school or state level must be submitted within 1 business day following the fair. Once the official results have been finalized following judging, the fair director will only modify or overrule a judge's decision in the event of an obvious mathematical error in the scoring process.
  4. The fair coordinator at each level of competition (school or state) has sole and final authority to resolve issues, concerns, conflicts, or disputes at that level of competition. State fair coordinators will not intervene in matters related to school fairs.
