Folks, we’ve had a request from the 2015 Colorado Science and Engineering
Fair, looking for scientists to act as judges from 9am - 5:30pm on
Thursday, April 9th at Colorado State University (see below for the full
request from the coordinator). If you’ve never judged a science fair
before, I highly recommend it, as it’s a ton of fun - the kids are smart
and motivated, and occasionally have some rather “creative” ideas for

If you are interested in volunteering for this, please sign up or contact
the coordinator directly (details below), but please also cc me (
carolyn at ucar.edu) so I know you’re going, and can report numbers to the

Thank you!!


The 2015 Colorado Science and Engineering Fair (CSEF) will be held April
9-11, 2015 is the 60th Anniversary of the CSEF!  Judging for the CSEF will
take place from 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 9th.  The fair will be
held in the Lory Student Center at Colorado State University.

The success of the CSEF depends in a huge part on the quality of the judges
who volunteer to judge the approximately 400 projects from the 6th-12th
grades (Junior Division is grades 6-8 and Senior Division is grades 9-12)
in 12 different categories.  A description of the categories can be found
at http://www.csef.colostate.edu/Category_Descriptions.pdf.
<http://www.csef.colostate.edu/Category_Descriptions.pdf> You participation
is greatly appreciated.

Judge, please visit  The
importance of your assistance as a Grand Awards Judge at the CSEF cannot be
estimated enough.  These students come from all over the state of Colorado
to compete at the CSEF.  For grades 9-12, many of these students will get
the opportunity to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering
Fair.  ALL of the students gain the experience of presenting a project to
the judges (both visually and verbally), meet potential contacts who will
help them on their road to college and in some cases includes internships,
gain the experience of creating or designing a project from start to
finish, and will have the opportunity to receive scholarships to state
higher education.  To view some of the past CSEF successes, please see

Please join us for the 2015 CSEF!  If you have any question, please feel
free to contact me.
Warm regards,
