Photograph Display Restrictions

Photographs and/or visual depictions are allowed if:

  • Credit lines of their origins ("Photograph taken by ..." or "Image taken from ...") are attached, including photos from someone other than the inventor, the internet, magazines, newspapers, journals, etc.
  • If all photographs being displayed were taken by the inventor, one credit line prominently displayed indicating that the inventor took all photographs is sufficient.

For photographs of human subjects (other than the inventor and/or inventor's family), signed consent forms must be available at the project.

Text Box:

You will receive a final agenda for the day when you arrive and check in. The Kid's Café in the Museum will be open or you may bring your lunch. Please do not plan on going out for lunch: if the judges needed to talk to you during final judging, you will risk not being in place.

Remember, if you are not in your place when the judges get there,
your invention will not be judged.
