Amid continued budget issues, State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister announced earlier this week that the education department would not be allocating the $50,000 needed to hold this year's Oklahoma State Science and Engineering Fair.
Hofmeister explained to KFOR: “It was due to the budget cuts we had last year. There was a loss of $38 million to that fund and that line item really required deep cuts and decisions.”
However, according to a press release from State Rep. Pat Ownbey (R-Ardmore), it looks like the private sector has rescued the science fair.
