Orientation for Judges

Thank you for volunteering your time and scientific expertise to the students of Chester!

Please plan to arrive at Black River Middle School on North Road in Chester between 8 – 8:30 am on Saturday. 

The schedule for the day is:

8:00 –  8:30             Arrival and breakfast
8:30 –  9:15           Orientation and training for the judges 
9:15 –  9:45           Open time for the judges to walk around and look at projects
9:45 – 1:30           Judging. Some judge teams will finish slightly earlier
Please note that the 9:45 a.m. judge time may be moved back to 10:00 a.m., but at this moment, we cannot guarantee that.  Orientation will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m.

A break for lunch, as well as lunch itself, is provided during the judge time.

This year we are dividing our Orientation presentation into three parts:
Grades K-2
Grades 3-5
Grades 6-8
Please review the orientation material prior to Saturday morning.
We especially ask our first-time judges to take the time to go over this material prior to the Fair.
