AFTER you've done your research and concluded your experiments, it is time to prepare for the science fair. Ask specific questions about preparing for a science fair, including how to set up your display board, how to prepare a presentation, etc. (Please post questions about selecting a project or conducting your experiment by posting in the appropriate "area of science" forum.)

Is there a certian outline to write an acknowledgement? I have a lot of people to thank and I was wondering what format I need to write it in. What should I include ? I intend to get a high mark on my science fair, so thats why I need to know every little detail from title, down to acknowledgements. Is there a certain way to write them, or do I just say "thank you grandma, thank you cousin" and so on, or do I have to say why ?

Acknowledgements are usually written in a paragraph format. Also, it is common for the author to briefly describe the reason for the acknowledgement; examples include funding or monetary support, intellectual contributions to the work/experimental design, or help editing the final piece of work.
Hope this helps,
