Judge information for 2020-2021 Fair
Judges will be asked to select their availability for judging on the
judge application. All judges should complete and/or update their
information on the current application. The application is for
category judges AND those judging professional awards. Please
note: Since the fair is virtual this year, all judges will be
required to attend a training session (virtually), to be scheduled
during the last week of February.
There will be two different judging sessions, all done virtually:
Session 1 occurs from Thursday, March 4, 2021, starting at 8:00 AM
and continues until Sunday, March 7, 2021 at 5:00 PM. Judges will
review entries submitted online (includes a video and pdf of a 'project
presentation' and score them. Each judge will review 20-25 projects.
Most of the judging should occur on Thursday and Friday, with Saturday and
Sunday for final cleanup.
Session 2 occurs on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 from 9:00 AM to noon
and will involve interviews with the top 50 senior division students.
