Science Fair....where to start?!

I am coordinating the science fair this year. I did it last year, but I had a great deal of help since I was new. This year it's me, myself and I. The fair is on January 18th. For 3-8 students it is 30% of their grade, but I'm thinking of inviting the primary grades as well (I teach 1st).

I'm thinking I should be sending a letter now-ish. First one to the teachers to let them know what I expect....
K-2 Will do exhibits on life science
3-5 Will do experiments on ____________
6-8 Will do experiments AND research projects on _______________

(I would like to set topics or at least areas of study because last year I go a lot of "how to make ice cream" and "which brand of soda is the best?" projects.)

I also want to set the standard for presenting. Last year, Three kids sat next to each project. Only there wasn't enough room so three kids stood at each table which created chaos. One kid needs to present at each table. Period. In the case of K-2, no one needs to present.

I also need to set a better time for students to come see the projects. With 3/5s of the students presenting, not a lot of kids got to see the projects.

Rubrics. Judges. Table set-up. Decoration. Check. Check. Check.

Am I missing anything?
