ROUND 1:  Virtual/Remote Judging of Video Presentations 
                      March 28th (NOON) – March 30th 

After receiving an email with your individual LINK to the virtual fair platform (Rocket Judge) you may begin Judging – on your own time – from Noon March 28th noon – 4:00 on Tuesday, March 30th.

Deliberations with your Category Team will take place Tuesday, at 6:00 PM.

Videos are to be 10 minutes or less. There will be access to a Poster; the Abstract; and forms for projects done in a lab (1C) and/or continuing projects (7).

Depending on the size of the Category and the number of Judges – you should be assigned less than 10 projects to review and score. So you would allow 10 minutes X 10 projects for a total of 100 minutes for Judging – “on your own.”

SSEF Judges will be assigned a Category Team. Rocket Judge will randomly assign Judges to projects. Each project will be judged at least 3 times and scores will be submitted for the Collaboration Session automatically through the platform.
