Thank you to the WRSTEF Sponsors!

Without the generous support of our sponsors the Fair would not be possible!

Judging Video (Sponsored Awards but also Excellence too)


 Marking Rubric Experiment


 Marking Rubric  Innovation


 Marking Rubric Study




Each year the WRSTEF needs more than 300 judges to mark the many projects that participate in the fair.


We have two types of judges:


• Excellence Judges who work in teams of 3-5 people to assign a mark to each project, and ;

• Sponsored Award Judges who choose the best project that fit the criteria for one of our many local awards.


The majority of our judges are faculty or graduate students from St.Clair College and the University of Windsor, and members of the scientific, technological and engineering communities. As well, some of our sponsors send judges to choose the projects for the awards that they sponsor.


You can register to judge via the Registration page.


This document includes judging tips that will come in handy during judging day.


This judging video explains the judging process (in person), for sponsored awards. Both Excellence and Sponsored Awards rely on the same marking rubric so once your past the Sponsored Award blurb, the rest of the video is pertinent.
