Judge & Volunteer Registration

2021 Virtual California Invention Convention

April 2021

NOTE:  If you are a registered judge and you are not able to fulfill your commitment, please notify us ASAP – contact us

Volunteer – This year, as we are having a virtual event, we will not be needing the support of volunteers.  Thank you for thinking of us — and we would be delighted if you decide to register as a judge.  If this doesn’t work for you, we hope to see you at our Spring event in 2022!

Judges  – Schedule for our Virtual Event

Using our Online Judging system, you will be assigned to a “judging circle” where you and other judges will judge 8-12 inventions from students in the same grade band (Grades K-2, 3,4,5,6-8,9-12).  This year the judging will be done through reviews of a a 4-6 minute video for each invention, as well as two PDF files containing the Invention Log and the Display Board/Presention.

April 5th — You will receive via email links to the videos and related project information for your judging circle, along with instructions for scoring and entering your scores online.

April 5th – April 15th:  Using the Online Judging system, you will review, at your convenience,  the assigned videos and associated documents.  You  then enter your scores, as well as feedback for each inventor.  All inventions must be reviewed and scored by 8PM on April 15th, 2021.

April 23 – Awards Ceremony – virtual.  Details to come.

April 25-28 – Results will be posted online at California Invention Convention website.
