Judges play a key role for budding inventors with their first taste of reality – "Will someone other than my Mom and Dad think this is a really great idea like I do?"
Judges are a key part of the whole experience - starting with the local school event, to the CIC Regionals around the state (new this year!), and then to the CIC Finals at Gampel Pavilion at UCONN in Storrs. For these young inventors, meeting and presenting to judges is the pinnacle of their invention process. We value each and every judge who is a part of the Invention Convention. Being a CIC judge is a fulfilling and worthy experience. It's something judges tell us they look forward to each year. It's as much an event for the judges as it is for the students.
