Volunteer Judge Recruitment for USC Annual Undergraduate Symposium for Scholarly and Creative Work

We are looking for post docs who can serve as judges for USC’s Twenty-Second Annual Undergraduate Symposium for Scholarly and Creative Work.

This year the Symposium takes place on Wednesday, April 15. Undergraduates from across the University will be displaying projects in five categories:  Arts, Humanities, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Engineering, and Social Sciences. This year each category will be judged by a panel led by a faculty member and composed of senior graduate students and postdoctoral associates nominated by their units.

The judging process has two components: On Tuesday, April 14, students will set up their projects in Ronald Tutor Hall Campus Center Ballroom for closed judging. The Judges are asked to stop by sometime on Tuesday, April 14 (anytime) to browse through the projects while the students are not present. Then on Wednesday, April 15, students check-in and proceed to their tables in the ballroom. From 11 AM to 3 PM the Judges stop by each project in their category to interview the students on their work. Shortly after 2 PM the Judges convene in their panels to select the prize winners.

The Judges are also invited to attend the Awards Banquet TBA at 6 PM on the evening of April 15, though this is not required. As a small token of appreciation, each Judge will receive a $50 USC Bookstore gift certificate.
