Senior Project Judges Needed
We are still in need of a few judges for the December 7th Presentation Night!
Senior Project is an exciting part of every LHS senior's experience as they explore topics of their choice and share what they learn with members of the community. There are different components of the project including creating a proposal, writing an annotated bibliography, and completing an activity. As the culminating event of their Senior Project, students give an 8-10 minute presentation about their experience to a panel of adult volunteer judges. These judges score students on their presentation skills and give them feedback designed to help them in their future pursuits.
If you have never judged before, judges training will begin at 5:30 pm in the Lovejoy High School Library. Dinner will be provided. Presentations will begin at 6:30 p.m. and should conclude by 9:00 p.m. at the latest.
If you would like to sign-up to judge, please complete the google form here.
