The PA Media and Design Competition (formerly the PA Computer Fair) is an annual event, typically held in March or April, that highlights Pennsylvania school students’ application skills and computer knowledge. Students are able to unleash their creativity, learn how to convey information more dynamically, and enhance the learning process.  This competition is open to all students in grades 6-12, in public or private schools as well as state-approved home-school programs.

The Middle School and High School Competitions are two separate events operating under the same rules but held the same day at the same place under a common schedule.

Be sure to follow the regulations posted at the website – PA Media and Design Competition.
