School Fees

Our fair is doing our utmost to insure that needy schools and students who really want to challenge themselves and enter our fair will not meet financial barriers.  That said, we are a 501 c3 all volunteer organization and  and we have to fund raise over $140,000 to put on the fair.  Submit a waiver for registration fees if this is the ONLY way in which your students can enter fair.  Middle and High Schools may request a waiver for the registration fee if the school:

  • receives Title 1 funding and the school fee will be difficult to cover by general funds, the PTA, Booster Club or a Fundraiser.
  • has a population of 80% under-represented minorities in science, which includes students of American Indian or Alaskan Native, Pacific Islander, Filipino, Hispanic or African American heritage (Federal designation).

In order to encourage greater High School participation, the Los Angeles County Science and Engineering Fair this year is offering registration fees based on the number of projects a High School will send.  We regret that we cannot offer this same pricing to Middle Schools, but it is our goal to fund raise an extra $15,000.00 this year so that we can eliminate all school registration fees for the 2016 Fair.  We appreciate your understanding and welcome your help with reaching our fundraising goal!
