We need Volunteers and Judges!

Judging for the SARSEF Fair takes place Thursday, April 12th at the Tucson Convention Center.
It is a fun day where you encourage our next generation of problem solvers by rewarding their hard work! You will be working on a Team with at least a few experienced judges, so that no one person decides the fate of a project.  When you sign up, you will indicate the grade level and categories you would prefer to judge, and we do our best to ensure you get one of your top choices.
Times are dependent on the grade level you are interested in.
8:00am to 12:30pm for grades K-8 and 8:00am to about 3:30pm for High School. 
Breakfast and Lunch are provided.
K-5 – Love children and have an interest in some area of science or engineering
Gr. 6-8: Some college classes and/or Bachelors preferred in an area that is science or engineering related
HS: prefer Bachelors in a specific field of science or engineering and some graduate work.
For even more information, go to: and check out our left sidebar, as well as our judge’s handbook.
