  3. Fill out the on-line form between Mon., Feb. 7 and Wed., Mar. 2.

Please note:

Registration Step by Step

Step 1 - Print and complete draft of registration form

Print and fill out a rough copy of the registration form. Use of this draft form will help you make sure that you have all of the information that you need for the official entry form. Once you have completed the form, have your teacher or sponsor review it before filling out the on-line version (step 3). Please check for spelling, grammar and capitalization-- the information that you submit will be in the Awards Program, in judges material, on your name tag and on the Web exactly as we receive it.

Step 2 - Print and complete required scientific review forms

The relevant scientific-review forms must be filled out and submitted before the end of the registration period. Links to the forms (which are in Adobe Acrobat format) are found on the Project Rules & Regulations page. Some of these forms need to be completed before
starting your experimentation

Junior projects use the YSF forms; this flowchart will help you determine which forms are required for your project.

Intermediate and senior projects use the IISEF forms; this flowchart will help you determine which forms are required for your project.

Signed and completed forms should be mailed in together with signed approval forms. See step 6 below.


Step 3 -Complete official on-line registration

Once you have the draft copy of the form filled out and reviewed (see step 1), you're ready to fill out the official registration on-line.  When done, please make note of your registration id and password; you will need it for step 4.

Note that only one registration form is to be filled out for each project (not one per student).

The on-line registration form will be available from 12 pm on Monday February 7th to 12 pm on Wednesday March 2nd.


Step 4 - Print record of registration

Each student and the teacher/sponsor should have a printed copy of the Record of Registration .  Enter your registration id and password below, then click File, Print. The printout will be your record of the information which you entered; you do not need to send it to BASEF.

Registration Id
Registration Password

  Did you see any mistakes on your registration form?  Do you want to make changes?  See step 9 below.


Step 5 - Print and complete approval form

It is imperative that each student gets his/her parents/guardian and school-sponsor signature on the entry form. Print out one copy for each student, have it signed and then return it via mail (see step 6 below).

Step 6 - Return signed scientific-review and permission forms by mail
