Please plan to register and have all paperwork together PRIOR to the registration deadline. If all documentation is NOT provided, there is a possibility that your student or child will NOT be able to participate in the fair and/or not move on to the State level should they win.
Should you have questions feel free to contact Dr. Farwell through the contact information below.
STEP 1. REGISTER YOUR PROJECT ONLINE AT THE REGIONAL FAIR SITE

STEP 2. PREPARE AND SUBMIT ALL DOCUMENTATION TO REGIONAL FAIR DIRECTORS
STEP 2a. Go to NCSEF Forms page to determine which forms you need and to download these forms. At a minimum EVERYONE is required to have FORMS 1, 1A, 1B, OFFICIAL ABSTRACT, RESEARCH PLAN, and PUBLICITY PERMISSION FORM. Additional forms may be required depending on the scope of your project.
STEP 2b. ALL forms will need to be sent to Dr. Mary Farwell so we can approve projects PRIOR to the start of the fair and determine if the projects are ISEF compliant. There are three methods for sending documentation to us, in our order of preference:
1. Scan forms and email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Make sure your project is compliant prior to submission by using the ISEF Rules Wizard.
WHY DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE A PUBLICITY PERMISSION FORM?
All students will need to complete a publicity permission form before participating. While it is not required that they give permission for the use of their image etc. at the regional level, in order to participate at state competitions and above, they must have approval through permission forms to allow for publicity of images.
