Comments: 1. Since this fair does not accept team projects among its participants, such projects have no qualification route to CSSF. We therefore advise students and teachers in schools in the areas enumerated in the “Authorization” section above not to initiate science projects based upon teams if attendance at CSSF is a potential goal.
2. Since this fair does not accept students in grade 6, such students attending schools within the areas enumerated in the “Authorization” section above have no qualification mechanism to CSSF.
