  Louisiana Science & Engineering Fair  

In addition to the LSEF, Louisiana has twelve Science and Engineering Fair regions to serve students in public, private, parochial, charter, and home schools. The parishes for each region are listed below. Information about how a school may participate at the regional level can be provided by the director for your region. (see map)


The Louisiana Science and Engineering Fair is an affiliate of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) organization. Students who win top honors at any ISEF-affiliated fair may advance to competition at the ISEF level. In addition to the statewide fair, several Louisiana regional fairs are ISEF-affiliated.
