Volunteers and Judges


Be a Science Fair Volunteer!  The Mount Washington Valley Regional Science & Technology Fair exists in part due to the generous time given by many volunteers. Besides judging exhibits, we need volunteers to greet participating youth and visitors, set up and break down exhibits and other important tasks throughout the day plus tasks that need to be completed in advance.

If you would like to Volunteer please click here and we will contact you:


If you want to Judge, please click below and indicate the times that work best for you! We will be in touch to confirm your participation.

Don’t think you’re not qualified to judge because you are!


Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!  There are many roles that are needed to help make this event happen.
