Lake Youngs Elementary School’s annual Science Fair – need of judges

Lake Youngs Elementary is located in the Fairwood area of Renton, and is part of the Kent School District.  It serves grades kindergarten through sixth.  Every year for more than 25 years it has hosted an annual science fair.  We encourage students to learn about the scientific method by performing an experiment and then reporting on it.  Every year we usually have between 175 and 200 projects to judge.  Because of that, we are always in need of judges who want to share their love of science with children.


This year’s science fair is being held on Friday, March 17, at Lake Youngs Elementary School (19660 142nd Avenue SE, Kent, WA  98042).  We invite judges to arrive at the school around 8:30 in the morning.  This will allow you a chance to share a light breakfast with other judges and view the projects before judging begins around 9:30, after a brief training.  You will be provided with a lunch as well.  Depending on the number of judges, the day is usually over no later than 1:30. At this time this year, we are still about 10 judges short, and I am hoping you can reach out to members of your organization for help.


I look forward to hearing from you, and please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.  Again, I apologize for the short notice, but I am actively searching for judges.  Once again, thank you for helping us connect with potential judges and I hope to see you soon.
