California Science & Engineering Fair
Project Allocations — 2018


The fair has lost significant display space this year owing to the temporary exhibit King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharoah, a major exhibit in the California Science Center during the fair, and running from March 24 through January 6, 2019. Nevertheless, we have attempted to make up for the loss by adding some new project display spaces in order to keep from reducing allocations again as we had to do last year.

It is the continuing intention of the California Science & Engineering Fair to balance the competing goals of raising the quality of projects exhibited at the Fair, providing opportunities for participation to students without an established history of strong science fairs in their geographical region, and fairly recognizing all affiliates, large and small, urban and rural, well- and poorly-supported, throughout the entire State of California. Built into these allocations is the assumption that a certain fraction will not be utilized, so that the total of all allocations is significantly greater than our participation target. Therefore, unutilized allocations of one affiliate will not be reassigned to another.

In cases where these allocations cause extreme difficulties, affected affiliates are urged to contact us immediately. However, significant alterations from the table below will not be possible.
