We anticipate our 2022 contests will be conducted in person.
Most NHD Utah contests will have two rounds of competition using a first- and final-round tournament structure. You may offer to judge one round or both rounds at a contest. You can expect to judge 8-10 projects per round.
Based on feedback from our judges last year, we will also include a week of prejudging for each competition. You can estimate spending 15-30 minutes per project during the prejudging period.
You will then attend the contest to interview the students, view projects, then complete your comments and rankings. We use an online system to host student projects for advance judging along with judging sheets.
You may want to volunteer for multiple contests. We have learned that two contests is a reasonable maximum for most judges.
Please be mindful of the time commitment for each contest, because we will plan on you at each contest you volunteer for!
