Judges are needed to evaluate student presentations and provide feedback to students on their research and presentation skills. Top students from the afternoon rounds advance to the evening callback round, where five students are awarded trips to compete in the National JSHS.

Not only do judges have fun helping out and encouraging students to pursue science and engineering, this is an excellent opportunity for networking and developing evaluation skills. MAS cannot reimburse you for your time, travel, or accommodations, but we will feed you well!


To judge JSHS, we ask that you have 6+ years of experience in your field, or you must have a doctorate in a science, technology, engineering, or math field or an M.D., D.O., D.V.M., Pharm.D., Ph.D., or Ed.D. This includes graduate students in the final year of their program.

Conflicts Of Interest

Judges must not be teachers of students in the competition, have children or close relatives competing, or be research mentors to competing students. Judges must disclose any potential conflicts of interest.
