Donate to Support the Fair

Purdue University Fort Wayne (Purdue FW) is the host and coordinating organization for the Northeast Indiana Regional Science and Engineering Fair, a 66 year tradition. Sponsors to the Regional Fair are vital as they allow us to reward and recognize students. We invite you to partner with us as we recognize and reward more than 150 students from area schools at the Regional Fair on Saturday, February 24, 2024.

We invite your sponsorship of the Fair in general or as a special award sponsor (or both!). The fair is funded through donations to Purdue FW, a 501(c3), non-profit organization.

There are two ways you can support the Fair:

1) General Fair Sponsorships pay for the ongoing expenses required to coordinate the Regional Fair program from August through May. During this ten month time period, the Fair staff and committee provide support to schools including:

2) Special Award Sponsorships involve the recognition of students for achievements based on criteria of the sponsor's choice. The diversity these awards provide allows more students to receive recognition for their work. These awards generate enthusiasm as students interact with the judges who represent local organizations focusing on specific fields of study. Purdue FW works closely with Special Award sponsors to make certain that each organization’s award is handled to their satisfaction.

Your involvement and support is greatly appreciated. Sponsorships of any amount are welcome. If you have questions, please contact Matthew Perkins Coppola, Fair Director, at (260) 481-6516 or Please also visit the "Sponsor a Special Award" tab to the left or click this link.

We thank you for your consideration of this program and we welcome your participation. Please join us in making the Northeast Indiana Regional Science and Engineering Fair a huge success.
