Make sure that if you are doing any projects that may need approval make sure they are approved well ahead of time and before you start your project. If in doubt, please contact us for advice.

When will it happen?
(Generalized dates) 
 1) A Contact Teacher who will organize the QRSTF participation within the school, and communicate with QRSTF, is identified. The Contact Teacher registration is done on-line, which establishes the email link between the QRSTF and the School. All communication, registration, etc., will be done electronically, through interaction with the Contact Teacher. The Contact Teacher needs to be a regular, reliable user of email. Schools need to identify a QRSTF contact teacher.  September - January
 2) Schools place orders for display boards. (The QRSTF bulk purchase results in a low price.)  October - February
 3) Places at the Loyalist College are calculated for each school. The population of eligible QRSTF participants at a school is divided by the total eligible students in the region. The product is multiplied by 200 (the total number of displays at the fair). If your school needs extra spots and they are available please contact us.  January
 4) The on-line project registration pages are opened. The calculated number of registrations is assigned to each school. This initial number will probably increase. (see (5) below) See also this year's Important Dates  January-February

General: QRSTF judges are volunteers from throughout the community: a mix of returning and new judges. Whenever possible, new judges are paired with experienced judges. Judges receive an orientation session prior to the fair, and a briefing immediately before the fair.

Our judges do an excellent job; we thank them very much! We are always in need of new judges. If you are interested, please contact our coordinator, Kyla Riedstra-Wiesner kriedstra-wiesner@hpedsb.on.ca  or Jo-Anne Peckham  jpeckham@hpedsb.on.ca - Fax: 613-392-8607

SCHEDULE FOR JUDGING:  Judges are asked to arrive at the Kente Building main entrance and follow signs to the judges headquarters. Judges should arrive between 8:00 and 8:15 so they can sign in, meet their partners and preview the judging package.  A short briefing will begin at 8:30 sharp.  The major portion of the judging will be accomplished between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon. Most judges who are not involved with second round judging, are free to leave after the morning session.
