Volunteering to judge at the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair is a rewarding and uplifting experience that is best seen when a participant is presenting his/her science project and realizing someone understands and cares about their efforts. 

Students across the state of Washington are making amazing discoveries and making the world better around them. The Washington State Science and Engineering Fair provides these terrific students a forum to show case their work and earn more than $1,000,000 in scholarships, opportunities and prizes. In 2009, a Washington State student earned “Best in the World ~ Earth & Planetary Sciences” and a trip to CERN Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. All made possible by people like you volunteering to judge at the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair. 

By judging, you are giving encouragement and opportunities for our future scientists and engineers to grow and succeed. An added bonus is that Judges receive the opportunity to experience first-hand the interesting and innovative ideas giving you renewed faith in our future generation.
