Register to Judge
Thank you for being interested in judging!
The role of a judge is NOT difficult, but it is certainly important and you will find it very rewarding personally as you help young students grow and achieve success in school and their careers beyond.
Prospective Judges register on-line using the CIC Online Registration Portal. CLICK HERE to get started.
While you are completing your registration as a Standard* judge, you will have the opportunity to provide a student grade preference. Older kids tend to have more challenging inventions, while the younger ones, more fun and entertaining.
Please only enter Sponsor* Judging information if you have been asked to be a sponsor judge.
Once you have submitted your registration, you will receive a confirmation email.
Further instructions will be sent via email as the CIC season proceeds.
Your exact judging circles will be assigned the morning of the event.
If you are having any issues during registration, please click here to send an email to the Judges Coordinator.
*Standard Judges are volunteers who pair with one or two other Standard judges to judge student inventions in a Judging Circle. Sponsor Judges are independent judges from companies who select inventions based on criteria set by the sponsoring company.
