What We Do

The Mastodon Fair is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports Kindergarten through 12 grade students, teachers, and parents. Our participants come from public, private and home schools in a twelve-county region. Participants may have one art and/or science project submitted into the competitive annual Fair each March at Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Missouri. Students and teachers win prizes, trips, and scholarships.

As one of the largest combined art and science fairs in the United States, we want to help students achieve the goal of submitting creative and innovative science and art exhibits that will help to further their education and inspire creativity. 

With the help of sponsorships and donations, we assist with sending the top students on to compete at international level events such as the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), Broadcom MASTERS, and Genius Olympiad.

We hope that by participating in our various offered events and activities, students will be inspired to strive for knowledge and apply that knowledge throughout their lives to benefit themselves and their communities.
