Rules Governing the EKRSEF


  • A contestant may enter ONE project, either as an individual or team.
  • Teams may consist of no more than three (3) individuals within the grade category.


Before the start of your science fair project, please utilize “Rules Wizard” to make sure all required forms are filled out. Students, parents and their designated science teachers are responsible for making sure ALL forms are completed prior to the start of the project.

These three forms are required for all participants and must be present at time of judging:

Check the Adult Sponsor checklist above to see if these forms are needed for your project.


  • Reports, record books, and all approval paperwork must be available for examination by the judges.
  • Only judges may be present while judging.
  • Entrants must be present at specific interview judging time.
  • School affiliations or names of participants must not be visible on any projects (projects will be assigned an ID number corresponding to student(s) name(s)).
  • No exhibitor will be permitted to change categories, age groups, or exhibits once the official entry form has been submitted.
  • First, second, and third, etc., awards will not necessarily be given in each category. Awards will be given according to minimum standards determined by judges.
  • The decision of the judges is final.
  • Neither the fair committee, nor cooperating groups, nor sponsors assume any responsibility for loss or damage to any exhibit or part thereof.
