Established in 1953, the Northeastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair (NEOSEF) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization, whose goal is to get young adults interested in science and engineering by participating in a science and engineering competition. The Fair has been held every year since 1954 and is affiliated with the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).

During the four day event, approximately 600 students from over 80 schools in the area set up their science fair displays, discuss their projects with 260+ judges and compete for more than $20,000 in prizes. One of the most rewarding aspects of NEOSEF is the opportunity for the students to discuss their research with professional scientists and engineers from the local area.

The IEEE Cleveland Section has given given out six Special Awards to NEOSEF participants on an annual bases. This year the upper grade level Special Award winners will also receive an invitation to attend IEEE EnergyTech 2012.
