Navy League judge Tom Danaher (center) listens intently to a student at the 2015 Washington State Science and Engineering Fair explain her project about energy from fruits and vegetables.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for your generosity in sharing your time with the students.  As a past judge you know the enjoyment and sense of accomplishment the students feel while participating at the Fair and sharing their thoughts and projects with the judges.

The word has spread and the Fair has hit its capacity limit of projects and students.  To make this expansion work we need 200 judges each day.

This year we expect the same growth and have made accommodations for this by completing judging for grades K-6 on Friday and having their space cleared Friday night to make room for the incoming grades 7-12 on Saturday.  By doing this we can handle up to 1,000 projects.

Please spread the word and invite a friend.
