Yes. Although the category "Team Projects" no
longer exists, team projects are definitely allowed. At the
State Science Fair, team projects are placed into the subject
category in which their project belongs. Judges will usually
have higher expectations for team projects, commensurate with
their increased manpower.
At the State Science Fair, Team Projects must have 2-3
students. This may be different from the definition at
your local or county fair.
I'm one of three on a Team Project.Yes. Your Application Fee applies to your
Application. Every person named on a Team Project must submit
his/her own application form, so each one must also include the

One of my Team Project members can't come to the Fair.It is not necessary that every member of the
Team Project be present at the judging for the Fair --
Regulations (see #2) state that at least half of the
participants must be present. This means one person for a 1-2
person project, and two people for a 3 person project.
Can we still be judged?
One of my Team Project members can't come to the Fair.Yes. If your project wins an award, the monetary value
will be split equally among your team members. Without an
application from each member, we have no way of sending each of
you your award.
Does he/she still have to submit an application?
The author list of a team project must be the same at CSSF
as it was at the county or regional fair from which it
qualified. All submitted applications are checked against the
qualification lists provided by affiliated fairs. Presenting a
project with an author list which is different from the one
which qualified at the affiliated fair is cause for
disqualification from CSSF.
(N.B. The team members must be the same, although the
spelling of names need not be identical.)
