As spring approaches, tri-state students and teachers are working diligently to prepare their projects for the upcoming Tri-State Science and Engineering Fair!  Once again, we have the privilege of inviting you to participate as a volunteer judge for the 2022 Tri-State Science and Engineering Fair.  Your willingness to share your expertise and time with the participating students is critical to the success of this event.  As a judge, you will be instrumental in encouraging young people to pursue their questions and curiosity about the world through science and engineering. 

For your convenience, you may submit your registration online by clicking here (coming soon).  We are seeking judges for the categories of:

  • Animal Sciences
  • Behaviors and Social Sciences
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Sciences
  • Energy: Physical and Chemical
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Medicine and Health Sciences
  • Microbiology and Molecular/Cellular Biology
  • Physics and Astronomy
  • Plant Sciences
  • Robotics, Computers, and Systems Software

At this time, plans for an in-person fair at USI are moving forward. If the fair must be transitioned to a virtual format based upon guidance from local, state, and national authorities, you will be contacted once plans are formalized. 

We will conclude judge registration on February 18, 2022. We hope you will join us for this year’s fair.

If you have questions about serving as a judge or your responsibilities during the judging process, please do not hesitate to contact me at .
