• Judge Information

    There are many opportunities to judge or volunteer for the CREST-Jane Goodall Science Symposium. 

    This year the 21st annual CREST-Jane Goodall Science Symposium will take place on Monday, February 28, 2022.

    We need scientists and engineers from our community and beyond to serve as science fair judges.  This interaction is often the most powerful part of a young person's experience of developing and presenting a project, and adds authenticity to students' learning experience.

    An overview of judge expectations, qualifications, organization and the judging process can be found here:  Judge Qualifications and Information.   
                                                            *** Vaccination and masking will be required for all judges. ***
