Thomas Alva Edison Kiwanis RSEF Affiliation & Fee StructureAffiliatedFairs

The Thomas Alva Edison Kiwanis Science and Engineering Fair is an affiliate of both the State Science and Engineering Fair of Florida (SSEF of Florida) and Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF).

Through School-based Science Fair Directors, schools affiliate with the Thomas Alva Edison Kiwanis RSEF and collaborate with the Director of the Thomas Alva Edison Kiwanis RSEF to ensure student safety and compliance with all rules and regulations. It is important to note the following:

  • Regional Affiliation and Registration Fees for school parallel the affiliation structure with State and International SEF;
  • A nominal fee helps to establish commitment and minimize the number of “No-Shows” at the Regional Fair;
  • an investment of $12.50 per Regional Finalist allows students an opportunity to compete for portions of $5 million in prizes and awards.
