No engineering background or competition experience is required - all necessary information will be provided at the competition. Learn more about the different volunteer positions below and complete the following form if you are interested!
Under the supervision and instruction of the national head judge, judges conduct the events of the competition, interpret and enforce the Rules, score the bridges, and monitor safety concerns. Judges should be able to walk around for the duration of the competition. Tasks may include taking measurements, operating a stopwatch, and recording scores. All judges are required to attend a training session, June 2nd from 11:30 am - 2:30 pm.
Each competing team will have an assigned bridge marshal who will carry the judging forms and lead teams to its assigned stations. bridge marshals stay with the team throughout construction, loading, weighing, and final score entry.
Volunteers will assist the planning committee in tasks throughout the competition such as competition set up & clean up, team registration, and more.
