Recognizing Your Student’s Achievement
Participation in the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair (WSSEF) is an accomplishment for which your student should be recognized and congratulated. A short news article in your local paper, radio or television, PTSA or school newsletter, church or scouting bulletin, or family letter celebrates the effort your student has made and inspires other families to pursue their interests.
WSSEF has found through experience that the most reliable way to get local news media to cover a students achievements is for a parent or teacher to contact the local media directly. To help you get information to newsletters, etc., we have created a sample press release. Download the appropriate electronic copy, edit to suit your student and then submit.
