About SSP Affiliated Fairs 

An SSP-affiliated science fair is a science competition that is a member of Society for Science & the Public’s (SSP) fair network. These competitions exist in nearly every state in the U.S. and more than 70 countries, regions, and territories.

The fair network currently consists of 352 fairs within the United States and its territories and 110 international fairs.  Fairs affiliate with SSP primarily to bring finalists to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), held each May.
