Seeking Physician Judges for NH Science & Engineering Expo

February 21, 2018


The NH Science & Engineering Expo Association is seeking 30 more judges to participate in the annual state science fair for high schools, the NH Science & Engineering Expo.  They are looking for medical professionals and those with training in biology/chemistry/biochem for the open competition.  Please review the details below and consider voliunteering!


The NH Science and Engineering Exposition (NHSEE or Expo), will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2018, 8:30 am – 2:30 pm at NHTI, Concord’s Community College. This event gives high school students in NH the opportunity to present their independent research projects in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

As we seek to increase the number of participants at the Expo, we find that we have 85 projects registered this year!! This is significantly more than the previous year, so, we need more judges!  As of this date, 55 people have responded to judge. We need 30 more volunteers to help judge and meet our requirements to send students on to international competition.  Are you able to give your time and expertise to the high school students of New Hampshire participating in the 2018 Expo? If you are willing to help, please register at before March 5th. A schedule of the format of the day is included below to aid you in making your decision. 

You don’t have to have previous experience to judge. If you have received a four-year college degree and/or work in a STEM area (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), you are eligible. The students should be the experts on their topics and be able to explain them to you. We are looking for volunteers who will encourage students and foster a passion for science and related fields. 

To register, you can go directly to the following link: If you have any questions, you can reply to Dick Feren ( or go to our website: and click on Contact Us and select Judge Questions. 

Please help us in our search for new judges by forwarding this request to any other individual(s) who might be interested in participating in this worthwhile and rewarding event. 

On behalf of NH science students, thank you in advance for your consideration.
