Our science fair will be on March 16th this year, and we are in need of about 30 judges who will work together in teams of 2 to evaluate and provide feedback to students who submit their projects for judging. The day would consist of a short training session, judging about 15 student projects based on already established criteria, a delicious lunch, and the opportunity to participate in the awards ceremony in the evening if you would like.

If you are available to help and willing to spend a day working with students, please email Mr. Hoel at Please feel free to share this with others whom you think might be interested.
