- Sign your coversheet. Once signed, an email will be sent to your principal asking for a digital signature to verify your eligibility. Edits to signed coversheets are not permitted, except for revisions to the project description.
- Use the formal name of your district and school. Ex: Houston Independent School District instead of HISD and John F. Kennedy Elementary School instead of JFK Elem. School.

- Each team member registers, creating an individual account and submits a coversheet.
