Information for CES Judges

Judges play a crucial role in this exciting event, providing important feedback for presenters to utilize for future presentations.

NIU faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to serve as judges for both URAD and CES! Judging consists of rating a student’s poster presentation or exhibit on the overall design, relevance of the project, appropriate methods used, and interaction at the poster or exhibit. CES judges are needed from 12:00-2:00 p.m.
