I saw Ankit from the Kushner lab, and Amy, who I'm always running into at the State Fair. They've been there ever since I've been judging as well. I think this was my third time judging the Junior Division.
I was walking through the massive crowd of kids to the restroom before everything started and one of them gasped and said, "You were my judge at Gwinnett!" I thought that was hilarious. I told her welcome to state! I didn't remember her at first, but then later, I did. I really liked her project - she did a great job without any help. I saw her later among the seniors and talked to her about the fair. It was a lot of fun.
It was from 10:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. However, for some reason, there were still a few more that needed to be judged after the 3:30 p.m. break so I stayed til 4:30 p.m. I was SO exhausted afterward. Not sure why - but it was a lot of fun. I had a great time! I got to see one of the INTEL ISF winners be a Junior Judge for the first time - so cool.
