Judges 2016/17



We also have qualified judges that help out at competitions, with you guessed it, judging! Apart from being paid in sweets there are many other perks to this.

If you are keen to taking a course, speak to one of the committee and we'll help you to sort it out. You can still judge at Uni comps without the qualifications though and can benefit from the free food!
