Registering for the California State Science Fair
OCSEF will notify students who qualify for the CSSF and alternates to the CSSF after the judging has been completed.
Students need to go the California State Science Fair (CSSF) website (http://www.usc.edu/CSSF/) and click on the link “Students.” Pay special attention to the items under “Rules of the Fair” and “Needed for Your Application.” Download a copy of the application and fill in the requested information.
Review the CSSF Project Categories. The OCSEF project categories align generally with the CSSF, but there are differences. Be sure you enter your project in the appropriate category.
Click on the link “Important Dates and Deadlines.” Make sure your application, certifications, and registration fee are submitted by the deadline given in the email from the OCSEF.
Review the other links on the CSSF website before you attend the program so you are familiar with the CSSF policies and procedures.
