  • Members will be responsible for scheduling an appointment time for each project they will need judged. Each judge will be judging a specific set of projects. Members should review the lists below to see which judge(s) they need to schedule their appointments with.

  • 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).

  • The judges list is organized by Project Name and by Project Number. Use whichever list helps you find your project more easily.

  • 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: go.osu.edu/licking4hjudging
