Each year more than 1,700 student finalists earn the right to attend the prestigious Intel ISEF as a result of winning an Intel ISEF-affiliated fair at a local, regional, or national level. Intel ISEF finalists compete for more than $5 million in awards and prizes and are judged on their creative ability and scientific thought, as well as the thoroughness, skill, and clarity shown in their projects.
Students in grades 9-12 or equivalent must compete in an Intel ISEF-affiliated science fairs around the world and win the right to attend the Intel ISEF.
