Last call for Volunteer Judges for Clean Tech Competition

Dear ASCE members,                                                                      

The Clean Tech Competition needs volunteer judges like you!Will you help ASCE Brigham Young University Student Chapter be represented?

Greetings from the desk of the Clean Tech Administrator, reaching out to you for the last time (promise) in 2017, to see if you’re willing to give some of your time to the next generation of young scientists who are working hard on their paper for the Clean Tech Competition. For those already signed up, I’ll be sending out a formal “Welcome” next week.
If you have served as a judge, let me re-extend my thanks for that, if not, here is your opportunity! And if you have already signed up for the 2017 Competition, you can disregard this message, if not, please read on. I hope you will consider becoming a part of Clean Tech. The Competition could not happen without people like yourself. I am reaching out now to gauge your interest in once again, serving as a judgeIf you think you’ve already signed up to be a judge, send me a quick email and I can check.
The 2017 Clean Tech Competition is looking for volunteers to grade first round submissions from student teams. The Clean Tech Competition is a worldwide, research and design challenge for students ages 15-18. The competition is annual, always focusing on clean technology, and the challenge theme changes each year. The 2017 theme is “Create A Greener Future”.
I would consider it a great success to have the ASCE Brigham Young University Student Chapter represented in our international judging pool. As the number of countries with team entrants stands at 26, the number of countries with judges is only six and I’d like more!  Should you wish to participate, the link to sign up is at the bottom of this email. Thank you for your time and your willingness to help the participating students. Already 330 different teams from 26 different nations have signed up during open registration and I know more are coming, which is why your role is so vital.
In order to facilitate the competition, we are in need of scientists, engineers and experts willing to dedicate their time to reading and scoring students papers. In their (5-15 page) papers, students will identify a specific problem associated with buildings or homes, building materials, problems associated with efficiency, damage mitigation, indoor environmental quality or a topic of their choosing. Students will then explain the impacts, analyze the causes, and design a clean technology solution to “Create A Greener Future”. Student participants will use their knowledge of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to develop their solutions.
We are also looking for three judges who would want to come serve as Final Round Judges at Stony Brook University on Long Island, New York. If you are interested, please contact me directly or ensure you check the box in the application; my contact information is also at the bottom of this email.
More information about the competition can be found at www.CleanTechCompetition.org. Information on judging is as follows:
·         Online Process – This judging occurs entirely online. Submissions will be emailed to the judges, and scores will be submitted through an online rubric.
·         Timeline – Judges will receive their assigned papers by April 21, 2017, and scoring forms will be due by May 5, 2017.
·         Responsibility – Each judge should expect to receive 5 - 10 papers, though this will depend on the number of participating teams/judges.
·         Qualifications – Judges must have a BS or BA in a field of science, technology, engineering, math, building, building design or have at least two years of industry/research experience in the field. Judges cannot have any children or relatives competing in the competition.

We would greatly appreciate your support of this unique program for students. If you’re interested in volunteering as a first round judge for the Clean Tech Competition should fill out our online Judge Registration Form by April 7, 2017.

Please feel free to pass this information on to those you think may be interested. You may contact competition administrator Frank DiGiovanni at cleantech@cstl.org or the telephone number below with any questions. There is also sponsorship opportunities available, so if your university or company has an interest in being an official partner, please contact me directly.
Thank you for your time
