Be a Judge

We are always looking for judges. Judging is a great way to ‘preview’ the fair to see if it’s something you want your students to participate in. It’s also a great way for industry leaders to interact with students. No experience necessary! To be a volunteer judge for a tech fair, please sign up here.
