Volunteers can expect to spend ~3 hours reviewing poster presentations and judging. Lunch and a small gift will be provided. Graduate students who wish to earn and track volunteer hours through iServe can sign up here first. You may need to create an account before you can register as a judge.

To serve as a judge, all interested who are interested need to fill out a recruitment form on the summer symposium host platform, Symposium by ForagerOne.
