Final application deadline is Jan. 26

2017 Project applications must be postmarked on or before January 26th.

Students are responsible for checking this Science Fair web site to see the status of their application.  The Scientific Review Committee which will review non-SRC projects coming in for the final deadline will meet Feb 4.

  • Use the Check Project Status button on the bottom left of this page. Projects are grouped by teacher or by private sponsor name.  Most project status changes from “Received” will occur after the Feb 4 review meeting.
  • If an application is not yet “Accepted”, but is “Incomplete”, the student should check his/her own email for a message about what more information is needed and follow up with the teacher or sponsor, if necessary.
  • If an application was submitted for the Jan 26th deadline, but is not listed as a project by February 1, contact the fair manager by email ASAP.
