Science Bowl Volunteer Information

Each year dozens of Ames Laboratory scientists and staff--along with faculty, staff and students from Iowa State University--volunteer their time to serve as judges, moderators, timers, scorekeepers and runners for Science Bowl. It takes each of you to ensure that our events run as smoothly as possible.

If you're a new Science Bowl volunteer, learn about the volunteer positions available (click on the Moderator, Judge, Timekeeper, Scorekeeper, or Runner links below).

As competition officials, we expect that you will come prepared to perform your official duties:
* Read and become familiar with the Science Bowl rules
* Attend volunteer training
* Moderators and Judges - read through questions prior to the event
* Show up promptly for all assignments
* Be respectful to all students, coaches, staff and each other

All interested volunteers (new and veterans): 

1) All volunteers are subject to background checks. Please familiarize yourself with other terms and conditions:  ISU's Volunteer Participation Agreement 

2) If you agree to the terms and conditions of ISU's Volunteer Participation Agreement, complete the 2020 Ames Laboratory/ISU Science Bowl Volunteer Sign-up Form (coming in September)
