Once a participant has logged in, they will appear in your participants list. Once they have entered their project information (category, title, etc.) they will also appear in your projects list. For a participant to be fully registered, he/she must appear in both of your views.


      PARTICIPANTS   

If you are new this year, please click the link above or go to pjasregistration.com to create an account. When previous participants login in for the first time this year, they will be prompted to update their profile.

 

Under NO circumstances should anyone (sponsor or participant) create a second account.

If needed, contact the regional director to look up usernames. If you can’t recall your password, click where it says “Forgot Password?”, an email will be sent to your registered email that allows you to reset the password.  The regional director cannot see passwords.

 

ISEF 

This year we will be using a Google Drive Folder labeled "PJAS 2023" for ISEF forms that require approval. A link to this folder has been emailed to all sponsors.

Not all projects need approval. 

Only projects that involve human participants (this includes surveys), bacteria (BSL 1 only, unless you are working with a research institution), animals (invertebrate only unless you at a research institution or working with a vet) or potentially hazardous substances (corrosive, flammable, explosive, irritant, etc…) need approval. 

Remember that any project with human participants needs to fill out form 4 and get signatures from a medical professional, educator, and school administrator.

Upload your paperwork in PDF format into the Google Drive folder. One document per student only, not several.

PUT IT ALL TOGETHER IN ONE SCAN.
