Grad Slam Judge Instructions

Volunteer to Judge

Volunteers play a key role as competition judges for the Grad Slam Qualifying Round. All UC Davis faculty and staff members are invited to volunteer as a judge for the Grad Slam Qualifying round. No research experience is required, as presenters are tasked with communicating their research to a public audience. A panel of faculty and staff members will judge the preliminary round. The judges will be selected to ensure disciplinary diversity and every effort will be made to minimize conflicts of interest (e.g., a faculty advisor will not judge a preliminary round involving his or her advisee).
