Dear MMS Parent:

I am requesting your help in judging this year’s MMS Middle School Science Fair. One of the experiences which stands out in almost every student’s memory is that of being able to prepare to explain his/her project to a “judge” who works or has a background in the field of Science and Technology. Young people need to know that adults who work in the field of Science and Technology care about their interest in this vital part of their education.

Judges will be needed from 9:00 A.M. until 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, December 18, 2013. Breakfast will be served at 9:00 A.M. The judging will begin at 9:30 A.M.

Your assistance with this all-important event would be greatly appreciated. Please review the Category Descriptions and indicate on the enclosed response form your preferred category for judging. I will make every effort to honor your preference, but I may need to assign you to a different category based on need. Please be sure to include your email address which will facilitate contacting you with last minute information, if the need arises. I’m also seeking awards and prizes for the participants. If you or your organization would like to give an award, please indicate that.

Science Fair judging consists of viewing the students’ posters and reading their papers and lab notebooks. Then you interview them about their projects and choose the winners.

Your prompt return of the response form will help to facilitate this aspect of the Science Fair in a timely manner. Please contact me if you need additional information- srugumamu@millhopper.com

Adult mentoring of young people is an important part of their education. The time spent is an investment in the future of Science and Technology and in the future of our country. Please assist in making this science fair experience available for all. In advance I thank you for your consideration of this request.

Sincerely,

Samora Rugumamu.
