When should you register? Note: Registration is a multi-step process.  It includes the on-line registration, and submitting all the required paperwork to be able to participate in the Expo. On-line registration is usually done after completion of the research plan because a brief description of the planned experiment is included in the registration form.  The actual timing can vary, and the following should explain how different parts of the process tie together. If the project needs pre-approval, some paperwork (including a copy of the on-line registration) will need to be sent in by the pre-approval deadline.  If pre-approval is required, experimentation cannot start until after approval has been received. For pages of Dates and Deadlines, click HERE. Experimentation must be completed before the final paperwork is sent in.  Final paperwork submission includes Abstract, Talent Release Form, other required forms, and payment.  Checks must be mailed.  Send to:  NHSEE, PO Box 5202, Manchester, NH  03108-5202.  They can be made out to NH Science & Engineering Exposition. Again, all projects need to send in all final paperwork, forms, etc. by the specified deadlines.  If you want more details for scheduling the different parts of your project, read about planning your project schedule  

NOTE: Submitting Paperwork Submission of paperwork for pre-approval is done after on-line registration.  When you do the on-line registration, you will receive an email confirmation.  Print a copy of the confirmation and include it with the paperwork submission. Submission of paperwork for final approval is done after experimentation is completed.  Fill out the required forms and get any necessary signatures.  Include the Talent Release form and a check for payment.
