Information for Judges:

General: QRSTF judges are volunteers from throughout the community: a mix of returning and new judges. Whenever possible, new judges are paired with experienced judges. Judges receive an orientation session prior to the fair, and a briefing immediately before the fair.

Our judges do an excellent job; we thank them very much! We are always in need of new judges. If you are interested, please contact our coordinator, Kyla Riedstra-Wiesner kriedstra-wiesner@hpedsb.on.ca  or Jo-Anne Peckham  jpeckham@hpedsb.on.ca - Fax: 613-392-8607

SCHEDULE FOR JUDGING:  Judges are asked to arrive at the Kente Building main entrance and follow signs to the judges headquarters. Judges should arrive between 8:00 and 8:15 so they can sign in, meet their partners and preview the judging package.  A short briefing will begin at 8:30 sharp.  The major portion of the judging will be accomplished between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon. Most judges who are not involved with second round judging, are free to leave after the morning session.
