High School Rules & Guidelines

Here is important information about fair rules and documentation that both students and teachers should read concerning the fair.

Required forms can be faxed to 702-895-4159

Note: Literature searches cannot be submitted for the competition.

ISEF Rules and Guidelines

Students should read the  rules  for the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). The Beal Bank Southern Nevada Regional Science & Engineering Fair (SNRSEF) rules are the same as ISEF.

Required ISEF Forms for ALL Projects

Certain  forms  are required for all student projects. Depending on the type of project, students also may need to submit additional forms.

Required Forms for Selected Projects — Use the ISEF Rules Wizard

Students are responsible for determining what  ISEF forms  are required if any. SNRSEF requires the same forms as ISEF. Students must submit any required forms to the sponsoring teacher and SNRSEF before beginning work on their project.

SNRSEF Project Categories

The SNRSEF project categories are different from the ISEF categories.

ISEF Guidelines for Students

Before students begin their projects, find out what steps  ISEF recommends .
Note: SNRSEF does not require a research paper, but does require an abstract. See the  Student Handbook . Also, see the  Document Library .

Display and Safety Regulations

Students should read the  display rules  for ISEF before beginning their project. SNRSEF rules for display are the same as ISEF.

Past ISEF Results

Students are strongly encouraged to see what kind of projects were completed by  Grand Award Winners  at previous International Fairs.

Students at Intel ISEF 2013

Intel ISEF Forms

Use these forms to document adherence to the International Rules

The International Rules & Guidelines include the forms necessary to document adherence to the rules.  These forms constitute written documentation of what will occur, or in some cases, has already occurred, in a research project. They are designed to provide the information that is needed to review the project to ensure compliance with the Intel ISEF rules and with laws and regulations that apply to the project.

The forms should be filled out and signed before any research takes place. (Only Forms 1C, 5B, 7, and the abstract are done after the research.) The dates of the signatures reflect when the approval or consent is given. Use MM/DD/YY format for all dates.
