For the Judges

To Our Prospective Judges:

The Fort Worth Regional Science and Engineering Fair is the longest continually operating science fair in the United States, bringing together several hundred student exhibitors from a ten-county area of north Texas. We support our mission of promoting interest in science and engineering by offering significant educational opportunities to our participants.

The 69th annual Fort Worth Regional Science and Engineering Fair will be held February 23 – 24 2020 at the College Park Center, University of Texas at Arlington. We are pleased to extend to you an invitation to serve as a Fort Worth Regional Science and Engineering Fair Judge on Monday, February 24, 2020.

As a FWRSEF judge, you will serve as a member of a small judging panel evaluating one of the fifteen categories of exhibits or evaluating exhibits for special awards. Registration will begin at 8:30 AM, accompanied by a continental breakfast. Students in both Divisions (Junior for grades 6-8 and Senior for grades 9-12) will be invited to present their projects to the judging panels. Judging will be held from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, followed by a catered lunch. In the afternoon, a separate panel will select the best-of-fair exhibits from the individual category winners. You may indicate separately if you would like to be a member of the Best-Of-Fair panel. Additional instructions and schedule information about the 2020 Fort Worth Regional Science and Engineering Fair will be emailed with your confirmation letter prior to the fair.

Please reply to this invitation by downloading and completing the judge's information form and returning it via e-mail by January 31, 2020. Student participation has increased, as has the need for judges. If you know someone who would be interested in serving as a science fair judge, please feel free to forward a link to this web page.

Your voluntary contribution of time and effort is indispensable to the success of the Fort Worth Regional Science and Engineering Fair. Quality judging, together with personal feedback to participants, has encouraged science education among the teachers, parents, and students. Your participation will help to continue this fine tradition.
