Judges Needed for Horry County Schools Upcoming Technology Fair
The Horry County Schools Annual Technology Fair is upon us! For those of you who have not had the opportunity to participate as a judge in the past, please allow me to share some exciting information with you.
Horry County Schools launched the first districtwide Technology Fair in 2010 to showcase ideas among students, teachers, and communities and explore the possibilities of blending technology into classrooms. Using the basic concept of a science fair, competition categories allowed students to showcase ideas to their peers from other schools, and awards were presented to recognize new areas of academic achievement.
Over the years, student projects have evolved with innovative ideas, advanced skills, and creative talents. The most rewarding part about the HCS Technology Fair is that its purpose has not changed; it is still about sharing ideas and sparking the imagination. The Technology Fair has grown bigger and better, more competitive, more exciting, and far more exhilarating!
Each year, we need judges to help make this event successful. It typically takes over 100 judges to adequately evaluate the more than 600 anticipated entries from grades K-12. We would be honored if you would be able to participate as a judge for the 2023 event. You do not need any experience to be a judge; however, I would like to place judges based on experience or knowledge of the content if possible. There will be more than one judge scoring the same project, but each scoring independently. The number of projects to score will depend on the final number of entries and judges.
If you are interested in being a judge and are available on March 29, 2023, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., select the link below to register for the event. (Judging will begin at 10:30 and usually takes 1-2 hours, depending on the number of entries.)
