Details about these important dates:

Pre-Registration: If you plan to enter the 2023 Science Fair, please complete this pre-registration online form so we are prepared to receive and judge your project.

PDF project entries for Middle School and High School: Students in grades 6–12 must submit their projects digitally as a PDF by 8 days before the Science Fair (not later than Saturday, February 18, 2023). This is to allow our judges the time to carefully evaluate projects in Divisions 6–8 and 9–12 before the day of the fair. The digital project entry should be complete, but it doesn’t have to be beautiful! Then you’ll still have a week and a day to finish creating a physical project display on a display board—which can be as simple as a printout of the pages you submitted digitally, or as colorful and eye-catching as you want to make it.

Project Displays: All Science Fair participants, in grades K–12, must bring a project display (or arrange to have someone bring it for you) to the Science Fair on Sunday, February 26, 2023. The Fair will be held at Fort Atkinson Club community center, 211 South Water Street East, Fort Atkinson. Please drop off your project between 9:00 am and 10:00 am on February 26. If this timeframe does not work for you, please email us at and we will arrange to receive your project display earlier.
