Thank you for your interest in Judging at the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH). The event will take place at the Fort Bend Epicenter from February 16-17, 2024.

Serving as a Science Fair Judge is an opportunity to engage with young minds and provide valuable experienced feedback and perspective to shape and increase student’s understanding. It is a unique opportunity and environment to foster an enthusiasm for the pursuit of knowledge and understanding.

More than 500 Judges are needed across various STEM disciplines. The minimum requirement to judge is a bachelor’s degree.
