 2020 Setup and Instructions


The Jersey Shore Science Fair (JSSF) has been held at Stockton since 1975, originating from a local need to provide coastal New Jersey students with a competitive fair that would allow them to advance to the Delaware Valley Regional Science Fair (DVSF). The JSSF is one of fourteen regional fairs that feed into the DVSF where top projects have the potential to move onto the International level. For the past five years, the JSSF has held first place in the Delaware Valley Region for the quantity and quality of projects being judged (as determined by the number of winners at the DVSF).

Today the JSSF attracts over 600 middle to high school students from up to 40 or more schools from the State's coastal counties (Cape May, Atlantic, Ocean and Monmouth). Students compete in fifteen categories ranging from biological sciences to engineering, to behavioral science. The JSSF is held at Stockton University in mid-March each year. The JSSF follows the rules and guidelines of the DVSF, found here
