Sponsorship Opportunities

1. Special Awards

Sponsor and judge a Special Award in a category or categories of your choice. Prizes are up to the sponsor, but should be science-related (i.e., computers, scholarships, calculators, journal subscriptions, laboratory tours). The Special Award sponsor may specify the criteria of the award

(as an example: any projects which include software code written by the student), judge the projects which qualify, and award the prize at the Awards Ceremony in the afternoon on fair day.

2. In-Kind Donations

Provide in-kind donations. This can include items for student gift bags

such as gift certificates, coupons, and free giveaways (pens, pins, lanyards, or the like). Door prizes for students or their teachers are welcome, as are items for the Awards Ceremony. In-kind donations to help offset the SUSSEF’s operating expenses, such as printing costs, advertising, and office supplies, are also needed.

3. Monetary Donations*

Provide a monetary donation. Donations are needed to award cash prizes and scholarships to student winners, send eight Senior Fair winners to the Intel ISEF in May, and cover operational expenses such as publicity, medals, and outreach to the rural schools in our region. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent as provided by law.

*Since 1897, Southern Utah University has been providing a quality education to students from all over the world in a variety of fields. Five percent of contributions received by the University will be placed into an Institutional Enhancement Fund for the Future is Rising Campaign.
