We need your help! Judges Needed for 3/30 and 3/31

January 23, 2017


Colleagues and SSTFI partners,

It is that time of year to recruit judges for the State Science and Technology Fair of Iowa (SSTFI). We are specifically looking for volunteers with a major, degree or background in science, engineering or technology. Please consider sharing with your department, colleagues and graduate or undergraduate students to assist us in our recruitment efforts. We need volunteers to judge all day on Thursday, March 30, a half or full day on Friday, March 31(if you can’t do a half day on Friday shorter shifts can be arranged if you contacts us). We also need additional volunteers on Thursday and Friday to aid in logistics of set-up if that works better for some schedules. Sign-up links are below!

Help with the 60th State Science and Technology Fair of Iowa held March 30-31 at Hilton!

We are in need of Senior High Judges on Thursday and Junior High Judges on Friday. You can judge a half day (Fri), full day (Thurs or Fri) or both days of the Fair.

Do you have a major, degree or background in science, engineering or technology? Then we want you. We are expecting 700 young research students with 200 of these being high school students. These young scientists and engineers will come to Iowa State University to exhibit and learn from judges just like you. The event will need 350 junior high judges and 100 high school judges to work with youth from across Iowa, serving as educators, to not only evaluate student reserach projects but to help students become better researchers. Please join us at this year's research event!
