Invitation to Judge at the River Valley Regional Science Fair (RVRSF) 2016

Judges required:  25-30, April 15, 2016

Science East is in the process of recruiting judges for the River Valley Regional Science Fair (RVRSF) being held at UNB in Fredericton, April 15, 2016. Judging for our Regional Fair will take place Friday, April 15, 2015 from 10:30 am – 4 pm. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Our goal is to ensure that the best projects at the RVRSF receive medals, regardless of the type of science that the project focuses on. All projects will be judged for medals against all others in their grade category – junior or senior. The junior category comprises grades 6-8 while the senior category comprises grades 9-12.

Several days before the fair, judges will receive project summaries for the approximately seven projects they will be judging. On the day of the fair, judges will work independently to assess the assigned projects then work as a group to compare notes with others judges to arrive at the gold, silver and bronze medal winners. All judges work together to determine the 3 Grand Prize Winners who will compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Montreal from May 15 -20, 2016.

To help assign judges to projects, we are asking judges to “Login/Register” through the River Valley Science Fair registration website at

This program automatically assigns projects to judges based on the comfort level indicated when registering plus we review any additional information you provide when reviewing project assignments, making small changes as necessary. Every effort is made to match judges with projects they may be interested in. The more information you provide, the better able we are to make these matches.

If you were a judge in previous years, you need only activate your account and verify the information in our system is correct. If you forget your password or have a problem logging in, send me an email and I will assist you.

Hope to see you at the River Valley Regional Fair April 15, Toole Hall, UNB Fredericton!
