Be a GPHSF Judge!

Join us in our efforts to stimulate
young minds in developing an interest
in science; become a GPHSF judge!

Who can be a GPHSF judge?

Every project at the GPHSF is judged by 2 judges, and we need:

Scientists Researchers, doctors, nurses, technicians... anyone with a college degree or higher who works (or has worked) in a scientific / research field. (This judge brings expertise regarding the science behind the project.)
Teachers Any K to 12 teacher who has experience teaching kids of various levels. (This judge brings expertise regarding age-appropriateness of the research.)

What are the responsibilites of a GPHSF judge?

During the week prior to the fair, we ask judges to review summaries (research papers) of the projects they will be judging in order to become acquainted with the projects ahead of time. Time commitment on science fair day is approximately 5 hours, as follows:

8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. Instruction to judges and breakfast (donuts, bagels, etc.)
9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. Project judging (Each judge will evaluate 5 to 10 projects.)
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Tabulating scores and lunch

After the scores are tabulated, judges will be asked to group students into First, Second, and Third Award categories, and to select the outstanding project(s) for each grade. You may leave as soon as that task is completed (usually around 12:00 p.m.), or you may stay for the awards ceremony (at 2:00 p.m.).

Science fair judging is no small task, and we are very grateful to those who take the time to encourage our students. If you would like to be a part of the GPHSF judging team, please contact the GPHSF Director.
