NRSEF 2023 is now complete – thank you for all your help to registered judges! 

New Judges

Are you looking to participate as a new judge? Here is the criteria that we are looking for in candidates:

  • Possess a scientific background, and know the proper scientific research methodologies.
  • Have a College diploma or University degree
  • Personable toward students

Limitations to being a judge

If you are a high school or elementary school teacher with students of your class in the Fair, we would kindly ask that you not register for judging this year.


30% of our Fair projects are French speaking, and thus we are always in great need for scientifically minded French language judges. Please help us by recommending friends that may meet this requirement.


Please fill out our pre-qualifier form with your name and credentials and a small explanation of your scientific interests/experiences. You will get a reply with a registration password.
