Southern Colorado Regional Science Fair (SCRSF) will hold its annual fair on February 25, 2016. The purpose of the science fair is to encourage learning and creativity in young adults. Students in the 6th - 8th grades compete in the junior division and students in the 9th - 12th grades comprise the senior division. Students will compete against projects in their same division and category for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Both junior and senior division participants will compete for the opportunity to attend the 60th Annual Colorado Science and Engineering Fair (CSEF) held April 7 - 9, 2016 in Fort Collins, CO.
The Southern Colorado Regional Science Fair receives 23 spots for the CSEF. Because we want to send the highest quality projects to CSEF, qualifiers are not necessarily chosen by their categorical place (1st, 2nd, 3rd). Once all boards have been judged, a second group of judges will reevaluate the top three places in both divisions in all categories and select the to 23 projects. We try to have the same number of representatives from both the junior and senior divisions, but this is subject to change based on the number and quality of projects in each division.

- All participants are required to follow the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair rules and guidelines for pre-college research and display & safety regulations. These can be viewed online at: http://www.societyforscience.org/isef/rulesandguidelines and http://www.societyforscience.org/page.aspx?pid=314.
- All projects, individual and team (teams may have up to 3 members), must complete, at a minimum, the following forms:
- Southern Colorado Regional Science Fair Registration Form (1 form per STUDENT for signature purposes)
- Checklist For Adult Sponsor Form (1 form per project - completed PRIOR to experimentation)
- Student Checklist Form (1 form per project - completed PRIOR to experimentation)
- DETAILED Research Plan (attached to Student Checklist - completed and reviewed PRIOR to Experimentation)
- Approval Form (1 form per STUDENT for signature purposes - completed PRIOR to experimentation)
- Abstract (1 form per project - completed AFTER experimentation)
- Depending on the nature of the project, the following forms may be necessary, for details, consult the Intel ISEF rules:
- Students in grades 6 - 12 living in Custer, Fremont or Pueblo counties
- Students living in a district that hosts a science fair must qualify through that fair before attending the regional science fair.
- If a district science fair is not available, then students should qualify through a school wide science fair.
- If neither a district nor a school wide science fair is available, then students are able to attend the regional science fair directly.
Once the paperwork is completed and the qualification requirements are met, send ONE copy (not the originals) to the Southern Colorado Regional Science Fair:
624 Windy Way
