Expo Info for Judges

Thank you for expressing an interest in serving as a judge for the 2023 Student Scholarship Expo on Tuesday, April 11. A hallmark of the Student Scholarship Expo is the opportunity for Bradley graduate and undergraduate students to share their work with those from outside of the Bradley community. We hope that the information provided below will encourage you to agree to serve as a judge for this event.

What qualifications must I have to be a judge?

We invite anyone interested in witnessing the exemplary research, scholarship, and creative work of our students to serve as a judge for the Student Scholarship Expo. Judges evaluate students’ ability to present their work through a short (5-10 minute) poster presentation to an informed generalist audience. We leave expert evaluation of the projects themselves to the students’ faculty mentors and advisors.

How much time is required to judge?

We ask for just 2.5 hours of your time between 10 am and 5 pm on Tuesday, April 11. You may provide us with your preferred times in the judging registration form. Your time judging will consist of 30 minutes for viewing the posters on your own, separate from the student’s presentation, 1.5 hours for student presentations and questions, and then another 30 minutes to meet with your judging group to determine group scores.

Will I be on my own?

We organize judges into teams; each team reviews their assigned student poster presentations and determines scores for each as a group. You may request to serve on a team with colleagues when you register.

How do I register?

Register online to complete a short registration form or contact us at studentexpo@bradley.edu to let us know that you would like to register.

Who do I contact with additional questions or comments?

Please email the Expo organizers, Kristen Woods and Melinda Faulkner, at studentexpo@bradley.edu with any questions.

There are several ways that judges can participate in the Expo. While events outside of the assigned 2.5 hour judging time are optional, we hope that you can participate in these other aspects of the Expo.
