Faculty and Post-Doc Judge Volunteers

K-GRAD Judge Volunteer Form

**Judges may be assigned to evaluate posters and talks in an area of research very different from their own research/scholarly background.**

Graduate students participating in the K-State GRAD Forum are instructed to communicate their work in a way that can be understood by the general public. To provide an evaluation of presentations from this perspective, some judges will be assigned to evaluate posters in an area of research or scholarly work very different from their own.

The GSC Research Forums Committee will contact volunteers by mid-late February with notification of their judging assignment or to inform them that they are not needed to serve as a judge.
