Volunteer Judges Wanted!               

VDSF owes its success to its volunteers and we are especially grateful to our volunteer judges for sharing their time and expertise with the students. No prior experience is necessary — you only need to have a science background and be comfortable interacting with high school students. We are especially in need of judges who can evaluate projects in French. Further details are below.

DATE: Friday, March 1, 2019 

TIME: 4:00pm to 7:00pm

PLACE: Langara College

Judges will meet for a quick orientation before heading to the gymnasium to evaluate projects. Judges travel in teams of 2. There are four 30 minute rounds of judging (2 exhibition/junior level, 2 intermediate/senior level) followed by submission of results to the judging room. Free pizza and refreshments will be provided.
