Procedures and Guidelines

Applying for the Statewide Competition

Each CSU campus appoints a campus coordinator and develops its own procedures for selecting its student delegates to the system-wide competition.  Interested students should contact their campus coordinator for information on how their work is to be considered at the campus level.  Only those students endorsed by a campus coordinator can enter the system-wide competition.

If a student’s work has been selected by the campus for presentation in the system-wide competition, the coordinator will provide a list of the chosen delegates to abwalter@calpoly.edu, AND each student will register via the Student Delegate Registration Form on the Competition Registration website by Friday, March 17, 2017. A written Summary must be provided with each registration.

In order to register for the Student Research Competition, the student will need to have an InfoReady account. If a student does not already have an InfoReady account, they should register for one via the “Register” button at the bottom of the front page on the InfoReady website. If the student already has an InfoReady account, they can use the “Login for Other Users” section on the front page of the InfoReady website.


Student questions should be directed to the local campus coordinator.  Coordinators may contact Allie Walter, abwalter@calpoly.edu, (805) 756-5153, or Debbie Hart, dahart@calpoly.edu, (805) 756-1508.
