Elementary & Junior Division Science Fair Form

Grades 5-8

2019 form

Elementary & Junior Division students (Grades 5-8) need to fill out and return a registration form to their teachers. To make it easy, we've updated this form so you can fill it out & sign using without printing it first.

Here are a few video tutorials on how to sign your PDFs digitally. Note to Firefox users: the PDF reader built into Firefox does not allow you to fill in the PDF electronically, but you can download and use Adobe Acrobat.

Attention: Senior Division Students

ALL 9th through 12th grade students need to fill out and submit ISEF forms in order to advance to USEF. If you have science fair students in grades 9-12 who are planning on participating in USEF, you should direct them here and have them create an account so they can get this process underway.

Once they are logged into this area, they'll answer a few questions about their project to determine which ISEF forms are required. From there, they can download blank forms, fill them out and then upload them for approval.

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.
