Judges & Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in judging or volunteering at the 2019 Montana Science Fair. The 64th Annual Montana Science Fair will be held at UM with judging and volunteer opportunities on Monday, March 18th.  Please consider volunteering to judge or to help with other areas of the fair. Please also encourage your science colleagues (including retirees), graduate students, and science majors to volunteer. 


All judging for the Montana Science Fair will occur between 11:10am and 6:00pm on Monday, March 18th, in the Adams Center at the University of Montana. Judging by scientists of science projects is a valuable service; it is also an excellent opportunity to engage young students (grades 6 through 12) in discussions about science.

Judges should attend orientation from 11:10 - 11:25am.  Lunch for all is 11:30am to noon.  

  • Select Option 1 for First Round (11:10am – 2:00pm)
    *We need more than 200 judges for this round - science majors can be especially useful here
  • Select Option 2 for First & Second Round (11:10am – 4:00pm)
  • Select Option 3 for All Rounds (11:10am – 6:00pm)

Most undergraduate volunteers will be assigned to Division II (grades 6-8).  We also need experienced judges to coordinate teams of Division II judges.


A variety of volunteer positions are available from 7:00am to 8:00pm on the day of the fair, Monday, March 18th.
