The Official Student Application Packet is available only in this online format. Affiliated county and multi-county regional fairs have not been supplied with printed Application Packets. Please download a copy of the complete Application Packet here:
If you are only looking for one particular part of the Application, you may find it in our section on Information for Student Participants.
If your project uses human subjects, vertebrate animals, or potentially hazardous biological agents, you will need to complete a certification form. You have two choices:
It is entirely your choice which form you submit. For CSSF purposes there is no distinction.
This section applies only if your project was performed partially or entirely within a professional research environment such as a university, national government lab, or a laboratory in private industry. If this describes your project, you are required by Display Regulation #8 to have a letter from an institutional representative explaining what portion of the project was uniquely due to your efforts. Intel ISEF Form 1C is an acceptable substitute.
This letter (or Form 1C) must be available for the judges to inspect at the project display. Further, a copy of this letter (or Form 1C) must be delivered to CSSF before you will be allowed to register and set up your project display. We recommend including this copy in the same mailing as your Signature Card and Application Fee. If this is not possible, send your Signature Card and Application Fee immediately and then send the letter (or Form 1C) as soon as possible.
Here is the Application. Don't proceed until you've downloaded and read through the Application Packet labeled "Download Me First!" above.
Please note that after completing the online application, you will still submit a Signature Card, App Fee payment, and possibly other documents described above through the US Mail. By filing electronically, your information will be entered into the Fair's database exactly as you type it. Further, your Project Summary will later be published on this Web site so that your judges can read it here in advance of the judging – not to mention your friends, parents, grandparents, ....
