Registration Alert for all Projects
If a student project does not meet one of the conditions specified in the ISEF rulebook that would call for Form 3, 4, 5, or 6 and there is no substantial risk identified, students may address the risk analysis in the project plan with a statement such as "Risk analysis revealed no substantial risks on this project."
This is a new requirement from the state director's office. In short, even if a project does not have risks as noted in the ISEF rules, include the statement: "Risk analysis revealed no substantial risks on this project" in the project plan.
