Note: The information and dates presenterd below is specific to the year of 2019-20, and the 2020 Chicago Student STEM Exhibition. Much of this information may change for the 2021 year and Exhibition.

Endorsement requests MUST be made PRIOR to experimentation in order to ensure the safety of the test subject(s) and/or the scientist.  The project plans are reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee and, if safe, the endorsement is granted and the experiment may be carried out.  Permission to carry out an experiment CANNOT be given to one that has already been completed.
NOTE items marked with a *.   For projects conducted in a university, hospital or research laboratory under the supervision of a Doctor, Professor or Scientist, endorsement(s) and supporting documents are NOW DUE NOVEMBER 11, 2019.  With the exception of the 'Use of Firearms' endorsement which is due October 31, 2019, all other endorsements must be submitted by November 22, 2019.  
To insure that you are using the latest endorsement forms you should clear your browser's cache before viewing any of the endorsements.  (See these instructions.)

Most of the items may be submitted electronically (see below) and only one copy needs to be submitted.   HOWEVER, if they are printed and subsequently mailed in, TWO copies are required.

Depending on the browser you are using, you may need to save the form and then open it with Adobe Reader X (or better), type in the information, print and sign it, scan it and then send the scanned in image electronically by attaching it to an e-mail message.  Note that only one copy is needed if the form is submitted via e-mail.

For all other items, PLEASE check the due dates on the STEM Exhibition
