Abernathy, Tammy V.; Vineyard, Richard N.
Clearing House, v74 n5 p269-76 May-Jun 2001
Investigates the students who participate in science competitions (state science fair or the state Science Olympiad in Utah) and what they perceive as the rewards for participating. Finds students participate for different reasons and see them as very distinct. Suggests that promoting other science events and activities may be beneficial in drawing more students into science.
