Help The CSF

The Connecticut Science Fair completed its 72nd year of service to the youth of Connecticut in 2020. This program is the result of the generosity of the more than 100 local corporations, government and nonprofit organizations that present over 300 awards each year to provide the valuable recognition and encouragement these students deserve for their efforts.

The Fair depends on financial support and our volunteers. Please consider a Corporate Sponsorship, Individual Donation, or Volunteering

Our activity directs all funds towards fair operation, student awards, and all expense paid trips to the International Science and Engineering Fair, ISEF. It is entirely staffed by volunteers.

Please review our 2020 Annual Report HERE.
