The Science & Engineering Fair of Houston needs volunteers!

Make a difference in 2023!

Are you enthusiastic about earth sciences?  Do you enjoy listening to students talk about geology?  If so, share your love of geology by joining the HGS Special Awards Agency team of volunteer judges at the annual Science and Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH), which will be held in-person on Saturday, February 11, 2023, at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Hall A.

The HGS team reviews Earth science related projects in the Junior and Senior Divisions at the SEFH.  A top project is picked for each division, and summer internships to the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences are awarded to 3 senior finalists.  The awardees are invited to an Engineering Science and Technology Council of Houston awards banquet (or Zoom meeting), where the students showcase their projects.

If you would like to volunteer to be an HGS Special Awards judge, and can commit to spending a half day reviewing the presentations at GRB, please email Dorene West (; please put ‘SEFH Special Awards judging’ in the subject line).  Join us in making a difference in 2023!
