Photos from the 2017 fair are now posted! Photos of students with their project boards are sorted by the project name while candid shots taken during judging and photos taken at the awards ceremony are listed by photo number. (Sorry—there is not an easy way to sort or identify these shots.) All photos should print nicely on your computer up to an 8x10. A huge thank you to Cindy Nordstrom for the amazing job she did this year capturing the fun and amazing students who participated!

USEF is the highest level of competition that students can attend in the State of Utah. Whether a student won an award or not, you should be extremely proud—you are all winners!


The University of Utah Science & Engineering Fair (formerly named SLVSEF) is an annual science & engineering competition for students in grades 5-12. Participation in science fair stimulates student's interest in science and technology while simultaneously promoting the development of communication, decision making, evaluation of alternative solutions and critical thinking.

USEF is pleased to showcase the inquisitive nature and scientific discovery of some of the best and brightest young minds from the Canyons, Granite, Murray, North Sanpete, Park City, Salt Lake and Tooele School Districts as well as the Salt Lake Catholic Diocese.
