Regional Fair Judges


Fair judges are a critical part of the success of the Regional Fair. Judging is done differently depending on the grade level of the students. Projects in grades K-3 are judged by PFW education majors. Grades 4-5 are judged by PFW education faculty, PFW science and engineering majors, and community volunteers. Grades 6-12 are judged by PFW faculty from the College of Science (COS), College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science (ETCS), professionals in STEM fields, and community volunteers.
