Posters are put into heats of 6-10 projects. All students from a heat will enter the judging room (Main Gym) together at the same time along with the judges for your heat.
During the session, that will last about 45 minutes, you will be able to walk around and look at the projects in your heat. You will be provided with post-it notes that say, "I like the way you . . ." and you will complete the sentence and give feedback to the other posters in your heat. At a certian time, the judges (2-3 volunteers from the community) will call you up and ask you a few questions.
The judges will ask you questions that allow you to showcase your knowledge of your topic and highlight your project. They will not “quiz” you. Remember, the judges are just there to learn about your project, and you are the expert!
Typical questions might include
How did you choose your topic?
How did you research your topic?
How does your topic connect to this year's theme?
How did you create your project?
What did you learn that surprised you?
What source was the most helpful?
What would you like to know more about?
Have fun and enjoy the process!
Please do not say what school you are from.
