Recognition of Judging Teams

Friday, April 13, 7:00 p.m. Nebraska Innovation Campus Conference Center

As a part of this event, we want to pay special tribute to our judging team alumni. Thus for the first time, we are asking all alumni who participated on a judging team in a year ending in “8” (2008, 1998, 1988, 1978, 1968, 1958, etc.) to come back for special recognition. All alumni from any year are encouraged to attend as well, and we hope that this new format allows for our teams to reconnect every 10 years. You’ll also be introduced to our most recent judging teams during this event.

As a part of Friday evening’s festivities, we will unveil plans for the R.B. Warren Judging Team Travel Endowment which will help to support all our competitive teams with operating costs throughout the year.
