2019 Northwest Regional North Carolina Science Fair

About Our Fair

The Northwest Region 7 NCSEF is located at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina at the Reich College of Education Building. Due to the winter weather this fair is held in December with snow makeup dates in December and January if needed.

To complete the online registration, you will submit all forms by December 7, and print the signature page. Mail the fee - $10 / project as instructed below, by Dec 7. Once your forms have been reviewed, you will receive an email if other forms are needed or if the project is approved. This is separate from the confirmation of the form upload email. Board Check in: Boards can be checked in on FRIDAY, Jan 10th, between 6pm and 9pm, OR SATURDAY morning, Jan 11th between 7:30am and 9:30am. (Note – some county directors and teachers prefer to check in boards for all of their students on Monday evening, thus alleviating the need for early morning check­in by their students).
