The Oregon Game Project Challenge is looking for judges to judge high
school & middle school projects. In the past they have had very few
technical female judges to serve as role models for the students in
the programs. It would be great if a few of you could step up and help
judge! All of the details and how to register to be a judge are
included in the email below.
The TechStart Education Foundation and the Oregon University System
will be presenting the second annual game programming competition: the
Oregon Game Project Challenge 2.0 (http://techstart.org/ogpc
). To make
this a valuable experience for the teams involved (we expect to have
at over 30 teams competing this year at both the high school and
middle school levels), we need volunteer judges to spend the day
reviewing the teams and their final products for the challenge. No
specific expertise is necessary.
The contest will be held at Chemeketa Community College Building 6, in
Salem, Oregon on May 16, 2009.
Judges will participate in a panel that will be evaluating the teams
and their games across several categories including Game Design,
Programming, Teamwork, Game Experience, and Presentation. Judges are
needed for about 6-7 hours for the tournament from approximately 8am -
We will be holding a judge training session in early May that will
last about 1 hour that judges can attend in person or via

interested in volunteering.
