Information for High School Entries
The South Carolina Region 1 Science Fair requires approval and additional oversight for projects that would be eligible for the Intel International Science Fair. These requirements are applicable to all projects entered into the High School Divisions. See our High School Division page to download these required forms.
Science fairs provide an opportunity for students, 3rd through 12th grades, who are interested in science and technology to pursue their personal areas of interest and to display their research as a presentation in a public competitive forum. The Regional Science Fair at Southern Wesleyan University serves the counties of Anderson, Abbeville, Laurens, Greenville, Greenwood, Oconee, and Pickens and works to create enthusiasm in science and technology through project-based inquiry. The fair gives area students the chance to compete for cash awards and other prizes.
