Science Fair Judges Needed

The 2019 Interior Alaska Science Fair is coming up and judges are needed! The District Science Fair represents a select group of projects from all local school science fairs in the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.

Judging will be at Pioneer Park Civic Center Thursday, March 28, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., with morning (8:45 a.m. – noon) and afternoon (11:45 a.m. – 3 p.m.) shifts available. As always, food and beverages are provided to keep the judges well-fueled.

Judges play an essential role. Please participate for a few hours and support these young potential scientists in our community. Judges are needed from all fields of science who understand the scientific method and who enjoy working with children ages 6-14 years. Sometimes the enthusiasm of young scientists is the perfect antidote to challenging events at work!

Contact Sarah Keller to indicate which shift, morning or afternoon (or both) works for you. More details will be available as the date gets closer.

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

To volunteer contact Sarah W. Keller, Volunteer Judge Recruiter, Interior Alaska Science Fair at 907swkeller@gmail.com or 378-2699.
