Dates, Times and Directions
Sign up Between Jan. 1, 2015 and March 5, 2015:
Judging Day is Tuesday, March 10, 2015
7:30 a.m.: Meet your team! Judges, please arrive before this time to ensure you have adequate time to meet your judging team — and to enjoy the delicious, hearty breakfast that we serve in thanks for your time.
8 a.m.: Judging instructions: There is a new chief judge (Liz Baker) who will have specific directions that include some new categories and procedures. Upon completion of instructions, teams will break into sub-teams to begin initial judging of projects.
10:30 a.m.: Begin the final stages caucusing for Grades K-8. Visit projects in question, or contenders.
11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.: Interviews: ALL “grand award” and “sponsored” judges will need to stop what they are doing and interview a minimum of three middle school students during this time period. These interviews are for practice only, and will not affect results but they are very important for teaching students how to speak to professionals and answer spontaneously. Since we only keep the middle school students available for one hour, we need all of your help to make them feel special and support them. Do be kind!
12:15 p.m.: Lunch is served.
1-4:30 p.m.: Interviews with high school students (for high school level judges only.) All others may leave once their team has completed judging — and turned in results before leaving!
IMPORTANT: All judging results (for sponsored and grand awards) must be turned into the HUB before 4:30 p.m.!
Please come downtown to the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Ave. You can access the area easily via Interstate 10, Broadway, or Stone Avenue.
