NOTICE TO STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND PARENTS: New Travel Policy for the Intel ISEF Competition

The GNSEF Board of Directors is implementing a new travel policy for the 2014 GNSEF top Senior Division winner(s) traveling to the Intel ISEF Competition. We are requiring that a parent, guardian or adult sponsor/teacher travel with the student to the ISEF Competition. This designated adult’s travel expenses are also paid by the GNSEF Board.

In the past, a GNSEF Board member accompanied the Fair winners, but the implementation of a revised travel policy will be in the best interest of the students since they will be accompanied by a parent, teacher or adult sponsor who is familiar with the student. Our goal is to make the Intel ISEF Competition a more enjoyable experience for all.

The proposed travel policy will generally outline the procedure for attaining approved travel plans, covered expenses and the process for reimbursement. When the travel reimbursement policy is ratified by the GNSEF Board it will posted on the GNSEF website.

Questions could be directed via email to co-Directors, Bruce Stanley or Pam Rademacher.
