Why should I be a BIG Idea competition judge?

Receiving around 300 entries each year, the competition relies on a large number of volunteer judges since each entry is judged by three separate people to determine the top scoring finalists. In just an hour or two, you can provide solid feedback to our high school entrants on their idea, a valuable learning experience for them.  Judges score the entry using a score card and provide comments. These scores will determine the finalists who will compete for over $50,000 in cash and scholarships.  To be a judge, please email your interest to kelly@growsd.org by October 25th so your judging account can be created.
