SSTFI is excited to announce that the new registration system is open and ready to serve our exhibitors and partners more efficiently. The new system allows a one-stop shopping system where registration serves for both regional fairs and the state fair. Students will be able to upload all paperwork to the site and make updates as needed. Please make sure you register for all fairs that you will participate in and pay attention to deadlines for fairs you register for.
