If you are having more than one project judged, please do not schedule the same time slot for two different judges. We recommend you allow at least one time slot as a buffer between judges (i.e. if you selected the 10:00a.m. slot for your first judge, do not select the 10:00am or 10:10am slot for your second judge to help ensure you have completed your interview with your first judge and prepared your project(s) for you next judge before your second appointment).
Once you have reviewed the lists linked in the bullet above and confirmed which judge(s) you will need to schedule with, please schedule your appointments here: Project Judging Appointment Sign Up is now complete.
