Calling all Isaac Newtons, Marie Curies and Charles Darwins. Canyons School District is holding its annual science fair in late January and early February, and is in need of adult volunteers to participate as judges.
As judges, science professionals will have the opportunity to memorably impact the lives of some very talented young people. Judges must register online, and are needed to help with the elementary division (5th and 6th grade) and the secondary division (7th – 12th grade).
Hundreds of entries are expected this year. Winners of their age groups will advance to the Regional Salt Lake Valley Science and Engineering Fair, where students can win up to $80,000 in scholarships. A select number of students may also be eligible to compete in national and international competitions.
The judging will take place at Crescent View Middle, 11150 Green Ridge Dr, in Sandy. The schedule of events is found below.
