Judges Needed in Pittsburgh

April 17, 2018

The world’s largest international precollege science competition is coming to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Sigma Xi is looking for nonstudent members in the area to volunteer as judges.

Sigma Xi judges will be at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) on May 15–16, 2018, to select the life science and physical science projects that best demonstrate teamwork. These winning projects will receive a total of $6,000 as Special Awards in Team Science. The awards are based on teamwork to reflect Sigma Xi’s purpose as a Society that brings together scientists and engineers from all disciplines and fosters collaborations. Judges are invited to stay on May 17 for the presentation of awards. 

Approximately 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories earn the opportunity to compete at Intel ISEF after being named a top presenter at local science fairs and then a state or regional fair.
