Science Fair Judges (students and faculty are eligible to judge) are needed for the evening of March 29. Those interested in judging should sign up on ZFairs and select the division and category. Senior Division Judging – https://mo-OSEF.zfairs.com Junior Division Judging – https://mo-OSEF.zfairs.com You will want to create a sign in for ZFairs. There will be a form to sign up for judging. It will ask for your top 3 categories. We will not be having a judge chair this year for categories due to the process of points. Every judge will be inputting scores online for the projects. Each project will get an average score as we have held the fair virtual the past few years. You can put the division you would like in the comment box. Contact Michelle Norgren if you have questions.
