Registration Guide -

For 2015 (to be used in 2016), we've put together a PDF guide to registration and two video guides that walk students, parents, and teachers through the process of registering. The example registration is of a middle school student, but they are all similar processes - just different registration questions. If you run into problems, please contact Darcy at

The VIDEO registration guides were produced by Eliza Grames, our database manager at the time. Eliza has since moved on.

PLEASE contact Darcy Schatz, our current database manager with questions pertaining to the video registration or other registration questions. or call 651-955-8301

Thank you!

Tips for Registration

Set aside 10-20 minutes for registration; registration must be completed in one sitting or the system won’t save your information.

Students should make sure to have their project information (e.g. title, abstract, category, etc…) and their advisor contact information ready before registering.

Registration is now a ONE-STEP process for students, parents, teachers, advisors, judges, and volunteers.
