Student Show Announcement - Help Needed

We need 20 more people to scribe for the Student Show and 2-3 runners to help coordinate between the juror/scribes and show staff.

The Student Show Judging will occur on Friday, August 6th and we need a scribe for every judge. The role of the scribe is to record the comments of the jurors, which gives you great insight from the judges. The judging forms have been improved to make the job easier and those who have scribed previously rave about the opportunities and education they received.

Hope to see you there, networking with your fellow classmates, and getting to know possible job contacts. If you can serve as a scribe, please RSVP on the submittal link located under the upcoming events (and below) by filling in the second half of the form. Hope to see you there! Thanks!

Scribing Details:

The following is a quick summary of the details for the day of judging. If you have any questions, please e-mail Katrina at or call 310-374-2285.
  • Date / Time: Friday, August 6th @ 8:30AM - 1:00PM (Approximately)
  • Location: Meet in Room 314 of the 1010 Westwood building
