Call for Judges! BC Green Games

Feb202017
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am

Get involved in the ninth year of Science World’s BC Green Games, a province-wide competition designed to motivate action, enable sharing and celebrate the green efforts of BC schools. We are currently recruiting a team of judges to review submissions and select 5 elementary and 5 secondary team projects, awarding each winning school $1000 to continue their green initiatives!

 

Over the past eight years our competition has attracted over 800 projects from over 40 school districts across British Columbia covering topics such as schoolyard greening, energy conservation, recycling & composting and community stewardship. Get inspired by last year’s entries – check out the project gallery at www.bcgreengames.ca.

 

BC Green Games timeline:

  • Action Plan Registration: October 1, 2016 to January 15, 2017
  • Project Submission: January 15 to March 1, 2017
  • Judging: March 2 to 16, 2017
  • Announcement of Winners: April 4, 2017

 

Your energy and expertise is needed to view and judge approximately 10 assigned projects, from your home or work, using our teacher-tested evaluation rubric. All confirmed judges will receive a detailed judging package including sample projects and will be invited to a training workshop (either in-person or online). Your volunteer commitment will be approximately five hours and must take place between March 2 and March 16, 2017 at your discretion.
