As part of your volunteer application process with Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair, anyone 18 or older needs to complete a quick basic background check for Criminal Records and National Sex Offender Registry Records. This process is very simple and will take less than 5 minutes. You will need to provide 1) legal first name and legal last name, correctly spelled; 2) date of birth; and 3) Social Security Number (SSN) – Note that SSN is optional. There is a button to click to override it. Fees are paid by the Fair.

Volunteer for a few hours or the day!
