SACSEF Judge Registration Form
All judges returning and new please complete this simplified form. You may be interested to know - we will be providing an online webinar and a slide show to help 'train' and 'prepare' judges for the fair. The training is optional and may be done at your convenience, should you be interested.

Synopsys ACSEF Confidentiality, Conflict of Interest and Harassment Policies:

I agree to act in a positive and ethical manner in which each student encountered is treated fairly and respectfully. Privileged information or ideas that are obtained through my volunteer service will be kept confidential by me and I will not use such information or ideas nor disclose such information or ideas to third parties. I understand that any information presented by students is the property of the student and will not be shared or discussed in any manner outside of the Judges Building, nor profit made from this information.
I agree to disclose all conflicts, potential conflicts, and perceived conflicts of interest resulting from direct competitive, collaborative or other relationships with any of the students. I agree to recuse myself from specific events, locations, category judging, and conversations (and other situations that may present as a conflict of interest) as needed to maintain the integrity of the fair and judging. I realize that should a conflict of interest arise during the fair process, I will notify the fair Directors and/or Judging Coordinator (Maafi Gueye or Suzette Takei) as soon as the conflict is recognized. Failure to recuse myself or notify Directors/Judging Coordinator will result in the student being removed from SACSEF and all potential prizes and awards.
Furthermore, I acknowledge that I have read and agree to abide by the following harassment policy:
All Synopsys ACSEF participants and volunteers are protected from, and must not engage in any form of harassment by another Synopsys ACSEF participant or other person for any reason including, but not limited to: age, national origin, race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, ancestry and/or veteran status and understand SACSEF has an immutable responsibility to investigate such claims.
In conclusion, I agree to notify Synopsys ACSEF Director/Judging Coordinator immediately if I become aware of any circumstance that would potentially compromise my ability to attend the event or fulfill my volunteer duties. Please email
