Open Competition Registration

Projects that do not follow ISEF rules will be rejected.

A maximum of three students is allowed on a team for an Open Competition project (the leader and two others).  The registration fee is $15 per student.  For a team of three students, the fee would be $45.

Pre-approval is required for certain types of projects, specifically those involving Human Subjects, Vertebrate Animals, or Potentially Hazardous Biological Agents. The Scientific Review Committee will meet periodically to review the paperwork and determine whether the experiment may proceed, or whether changes are necessary.

Be sure to include all appropriate forms if working with human subjects, vertebrate animals, microorganisms and/or hazardous biological agents. Forms and rules are in the Complete Rules and Regulations Booklet.    If your browser is Firefox, the booklet will download as a document, and you can print it.  Other browsers will take you to the booklet on line and you can print it from there.

To get more specifics on forms, see pages 29-44 in the Rules booklet.

Please note that the process of registration to participate is not complete until you have registered on line, and your forms and payment of fees are received by NHSEEA.
