Judges Registration Now Open

Register to be a Judge at LRSEF 2023

Calling all STEM professionals! Registration is now open for LRSEF 2023 judges. The 2023 fair will take place Saturday, March 4 at UofL’s Swain Student Activities Center. Judges are needed for all 21 Junior and Senior Categories as well as for Special Awards. You can review the judging criteria for LRSEF projects here. [PDF]

A middle school LRSEF student presents her project to an LRSEF Judge. The student stands in front of a white project board with her arm extended to point out a particular section on the board.

New this year: When registering, please indicate whether you are interested in judging Category Awards, Special Awards or both!

Additionally, in order to ensure the safety of all LRSEF student participants, every volunteer judge for LRSEF will be asked to participate in a background check provided by the professional company called Sterling Volunteers. Once you register as a judge, LRSEF will send you an invitation to confidentially submit information for the check. If you are able to cover the $19 fee, LRSEF thanks you for this donation. If the fee is a struggle or stretch this year, we truly understand and LRSEF will cover your fee.
