Electronic Application to the
California State Science Fair

How will I know that my application was received on time?
The application deadline is Monday, March 29, 11:59 pm PDT. After that point, the registration system will close. As long as you’ve got your zFairs account created by then, you've met the deadline. You do not need to submit the Project Presentation or pay the Application Fee or have paperwork completed until later.

What's to stop someone who didn't win at our county science fair from sending in an electronic Application?
Nothing. However, no Applications are accepted without confirmation by the cognizant county or regional fair of the eligibility of each applicant. If their name is not on the list of qualified students, their application is not accepted.

Can I pay the Application Fee electronically?
Yes. This is handled for 2021 through the zFairs "store."
