Golden Apple-winner Dr. Mike Huey is looking for judges — lots of them. "We need about 200 judges for the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair," Huey said recently, "It's a lot of fun, but we have thousands of entries!"
Anyone who has a desire to promote the advancement of the sciences and science education can participate as a judge at the event. Those judging the high school division will require more specialized knowledge in a particular field, while judges for lower grades will be more focused on encouragement for the future. New judges will be paired with more experienced judges, which will make things easier and more enjoyable for first-timers.
Volunteer judges are expected to evaluate projects in an impartial manner while applying the judging guidelines and provide positive feedback to the student. It's a fun and interesting way to give back to the state, so come and help out. To sign up to be a judge, go here. For a brochure with additional information, click here.
