Judges Sought for Virginia Piedmont Regional Science Fair

January 24, 2024 by

3 Young girls with science experiment Virginia Piedmont Regional Science Fair (VPRSF) is seeking judges — an opportunity to “pay it forward” and help inspire the next generation of scientists. The 2024 VPRSF will be held at the UVA North Fork Discovery Park on Saturday, March 23, 2024.

The VPRSF is an educational and motivating experience for middle school and high school students from our region. Your involvement as a judge is an opportunity to encourage and support STEM students from more than a dozen counties in the Piedmont region. The “high point” of the fair experience for most students is their interviews with judges. Your participation will help inspire and foster the interest and skills of talented young STEM students.

Registration for judges is open via zFairs:
