For Judges

Please consider helping local high school students from our school and our region by volunteering as a
judge for the Regeneron Westchester & Putnam Science and Engineering Fair on Saturday, March 21st 2020 at Sleepy Hollow HS.

We are hoping that medical and mental health professionals, biochemists, pharmacists, engineers, environmentalists , veterinarians and computer scientists will volunteer to watch students present their research via poster at our annual science fair. The top winners will represent Westchester and Putnam counties at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair.

Please consider judging and/or passing this on to a friend or colleague.
