How do we edit our display board?

Does it have to be double spaced?

from my experience of going to many science fairs, most presenters don't double space on their boards....it's probably because it leaves a lot of empty space on the board, which doesn't look appealing.

let me know if you have any more questions,

It is not a requirement to double space your text. If you think it looks better, and you can fit everything on your board, then do it.

The most important thing for readability is font size. Make sure your font size is around 16 points if you are doing Times New Roman font or something similar.

We have a page about doing a display board you might find helpful:

Here are some judging tips too:
