Thank you so much for agreeing to be a mentor/ judge for the Chicago Toy and Game Fair Young Inventor Challenge. We are very excited about our new format!
There are two ways to participate in the judging. We'd love to have you do both, but you can also choose to do just one or the other! You can let us know what you prefer when you register.
BEFORE THE EVENT:
In advance of the actual Challenge Day, we will be sending you submissions and Pitch Videos to review. There will be online instructions, and an included judging rubric to score with. There will also be a place where you can give written feedback to the kids. They will receive both the scores and the written feedback at the end of the contest. Your constructive suggestions and comments will be very appreciated!
AT THE EVENT IN CHICAGO:
In person at the Young Inventor Challenge. We hope you will be joining us at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair! The Young Inventor Challenge will be held on November 18th. We need Judge/Mentors from 10-12 and 12:30-2:30. Bring your Smart Phone or iPad along and you will be able to enter scores directly into the rubric on your device. This is the time when you get to talk directly to the kids, ask them questions about their projects and see just how creative and brilliant they are!
