State Science Fair Forms
All of the forms found on this site are in Adobe Acrobat format. You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer to download and complete these forms online. This program is free and can be downloaded from Adobe by clicking on the link below.
Click on the button above and be connected to Adobe. Complete the items required and download the file to your desktop. After you download the file you will need to double-click on the Adobe icon to install the program. After installing the program you will be able to open the form and complete the fillable portions before printing the forms.
Saving the forms will not be permitted unless you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat. For longer typing selections – such as your abstract – we suggest that you type it in a word processing program and then copy and past it into the form. This will enable you to save the work and not have to retype the entire selection again should you have to complete the forms a second time.
Knowing which forms that you need is not always that easy to determine. You may also connect to the ISEF web site and complete the online questionnaire to determine which forms you may need to complete. Please remember that if you have doubt, please go ahead and complete the form. Connect to the ISEF flow chart.
The Rules Wizard has been designed as a first step to help you determine what forms and approvals are necessary before beginning a science fair project intended for competition at an ISEF-affiliated fair or the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
