All students, regardless of grade level, who compete in a school STEM Fair must complete all paperwork (Parent Consent Form and CUSF Project Approval Form) prior to beginning their projects, this will ensure safety for all involved and eligibility for a student as they may advance to the District fair, Region fair, and levels beyond. These forms need to be turned in to Miss Stewart by Wednesday, January 30th in order to qualify for the District Fair. They can be found linked below, with Miss Stewart, or their teacher.
All project displays must follow the display rules set by CUSF. Displays may consist only of a display board and notebook.
