2017 Interior Alaska Science Fair needs judges

The 2017 Interior Alaska Science Fair is coming up and I am recruiting judges for this community event. The District Science Fair represents a select group of projects from all local school science fairs in the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.

Judges play an essential role. I am hoping you’ll participate and support these young potential scientists in our community. We need judges from all fields of science who understand the scientific method and who enjoy working with children ages 6-14 years.

Judging will be held at Pioneer Park Civic Center on Thursday, March 23, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., with morning and afternoon shifts available. As always, we provide food and beverages to keep our judges well-fueled.

Please let me know which shift, morning or afternoon (or both!) works for you. I will send more details as the date gets closer.

This is a great way to recall your own early days in science — these children are inspiring! Join me along with others in Fairbanks to encourage scientific discovery in our young people.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
