All photos are now posted and available to download. The image sizes should be sufficient to print out nice looking 8 x 10 photos. A huge thanks to Samantha at Kanzler Foto for being our official photographer of SLVSEF 2013 and to Kim Deimling of TAPSNAP for donating her time and efforts for these fun photos.
Thanks to everyone who participated in SLVSEF 2013! We all had a great time and hope you did as well. Here is a list of students who won awards.
Thank you to everyone who came out in support of SLVSEF for our first annual benefit concert organized by the SLVSEF Student Advisory Board. We all had a great time and raised a significant amount of money for SLVSEF! Check out the photos from the evening—including performances by the West High Dancers, Sam Samore, The Overtones, Polly and Suzy Creveling, Becky and Jiwan, The 11th Hour, The Rachels, The Ollipiests, Archeopteryx and a really cool science demonstration by Adam Beehler.

All senior division students are required to fill out ISEF paperwork for their projects and submit them to us so we can make sure everything is filled out properly, necessary signatures obtained, and check to make sure your projects don't violate any ISEF rules or regulations.
To help with this process, we created a special website located at: http://isef.slvsef.org. You can create an account there, fill in some information about your project and download the necessary forms. Once you have them filled out and signed you should upload them to the same site so we can review your paperwork. We will email you with any updates or corrections that need to be made. If you have any questions about this process, let us know.

Due to increasing costs of running SLVSEF, registration fees are now $5 higher per student. This fee increase is necessary to continue providing both students and judges with an exceptional experience at SLVSEF. The new fee schedule is as follows:
|Registration Dates||New Fee|
|Early Bird Registration||February 11th through February 27th||$20 per student|
|On-Time Registration||February 28th through March 1st||$25 per student|
|Late Registration||March 2nd through March 4th||$30 per student|
|Registration Closes March 4, 2013 at midnight MST|
Note: Registration will close at midnight MST on Friday, March 4, 2013. No registrations for any reason will be accepted after that date. Fees shown are per-student. For example, an individual student project registering before February 27th, 2013 (Early Bird) will be $20, a team of two registering in the same time frame will pay $40 and a team project of three students will pay $60. The team captain (the person who fills out the online registration form) is responsible for paying the registration fee for the entire team. (He or she can collect the registration fee(s) from the other team members later)
Fee waivers are available for students who cannot afford the registration fee. Students must register on time to receive the fee waiver. Students registering late (after March 1) will not be eligible for a fee waiver.
We’re also trying something new with student & judge lunches: Instead of students being dismissed in groups to eat pizza and cookies on the 6th floor, we're going to deliver a delicious box lunch to the students at their projects. We'll deliver them between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. so students can eat them whenever they get hungry. We have three choices: A turkey sandwich with chips and a cookie, A veggie wrap with chips and cookie or a spinach mandarin salad with a gluten free roll. (the wrap and salads are vegan).
Judge lunches are also going to be box lunches this year. They can pick up their lunches anytime during the fair which will allow them to eat between interviews or take the lunch with them when they leave.
The 2013 SLVSEF will be held March 20-22, 2013 at Rice Eccles
