Science Fair Judges

Dear WSU Students, 

Please consider helping out the Ogden School District by being a judge at our district Science and Engineering Fairs.  There are 3 different dates, Feb 16th, 22nd and 23rd and we need judges for all 3 dates. Judging will occur from 8:30-12:30 and we will provide lunch for the judges afterward.

We would love to have your students help us out and show the students how active and involved WSU is with our local community. Will you please pass the word around to your students and forward them this link to a form that will register them as judges so that I can contact them.

Thanks for your support.
