Special thanks to the judging panel, who gave their time and skill to be available on the day. This was such an important part of the process - the opportunity for the entrants to present their project and to be interviewed. Our judging panel were designers from within our community, and our wonderful community librarians.
Anne and Baruk (11+ year olds and mixed age team entries).
Catharina and Steve (preschool and 5-7 year olds).
Christine, Nicholas, Jerome and Gillian (8-10 year olds).
The judges worked hard! 7.5 minutes with each entrant, (yes, timed exactly as we had so many participants), and then to discuss all the projects, write comments on the judging sheets, and allocate an award name (which is on the certificate).
Special thanks to the 15 student volunteers (in their CREW t-shirts). Jed, Jaydah, Timmo, Alody, Jacqui, Sasha, Eliza, Callum, Johnny, Jessica, Jack, Myles, Taelon, Lucas, Erika, who collectively planned & provided the judge's lunch, helped with the entrant's packs, took photos, did a video, set the event up, took care of the outdoor games, manned the reception desk and cleaned it all up at the end. With every fair we do (and this is the 4th one), the student involvement increases. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who brought their energy along on the day and helped this run so smoothly. NOT FORGETTING our inspirational organisers Angela Gilberd, Monica Reed, their families, and the amazing support from so many parents out there. THANK YOU!
