We are seeking judges for the North Central Regional Junior Science & Humanities Symposium on March 24th at The University of Northwestern in St. Paul. The main judging shift is 7:00a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Students in JSHS (and Middle School Papers) prepare a 12-minute presentation for a panel of judges along with preparing a paper. The North Central Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program promotes original research and experimentation in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level and publicly recognizes students for outstanding achievement. JSHS aims to widen the pool of trained talent prepared to conduct vital research and development.
Who can volunteer as a judge?
Judges typically represent university faculty and researchers, industrial engineers and scientists, representatives of private and federal research centers, and medical practitioners or researchers.
To judge high school projects, judges must have a minimum of 6+ years of experience or a doctoral degree (this includes graduate students in their final year of their program). To judge middle school projects, judges must have 2+ years of experience or a Bachelor’s degree (this includes upper division undergraduate students).
