 Judging at the Synopsys Championship

The 2014 Synopsys Championship (the 54th consecutive
regional science fair brought to you by SCVSEFA) will be held on
Wednesday, March 12, 2014, in the South Hall
of the McEnery Convention Center in downtown San Jose.

This web page takes judges to the contact information and schedules
for the event.

Two Kinds of Judges

Have you judged at the Synopsys Championship before? Then you've heard
the terms Category Judge and Special Awards Judge. But if you are new
to this, or want a refresher, here's the difference.

CATEGORY Judges                 

You evaluate projects in specific scientific categories like Biology or Physics.
If you are a Category Judge, you register on our web site, and you answer
questions about your education and category preferences.

Special Awards Judges                     

In addition to SCVSEFA Place Awards (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.), over 250 Special
are also available!  Special Awards are sponsored by corporations,
professional organizations, and individuals.
Each organization sets it's own 
criteria for the awards they offer
Special Award judges evaluate projects that meet the criteria of the
sponsoring organization. If you are a Special Awards Judge, you probably are
from the sponsoring organization, and either you have been in touch with
one of our Special Awards coordinators, or you have been invited by one of
your colleagues.
If you have any questions, contact
You may preview projects between 10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M.,
before the students arrive.
