    Dear AIAA NCS:

    I am contacting you as co-Deputy Director of Education, AIAA Region I (Ken Visser is my counterpart). The annual student paper competition is being hosted (virtually!) by Rutgers University this year, and I am assisting in preparations and organization. We are in need of assistance in judging both written and oral submissions so I am reaching out to the National Capital section (and all others!) and asking for your support. Can you please try to recruit a few volunteers for the following roles:

    1. Written paper judges. Everything will be online as usual, so no travel required. We are projecting about 60 submissions this year, so we need something close to 40 judges if we limit the load to no more than 5 papers each (and have 3 scores per paper).
    2. Oral judges. Since the conference is virtual, no travel is required this year. The conference is being held Friday April 9th and Saturday April 10th with live presentations planned. Judges will be assigned to one or more specific sessions, maybe 2 hours each, and will score in real-time.

    To avoid conflicts of interest, University faculty are not permitted to act as judges, unless no entries from their "home school" are in play in the particular category. Professional members from industry or government agencies, or retirees, are therefore preferred. AIAA has a sign-up page for paper judges, but please cc: me as that sign-up does not cover oral presentation judges.

    The local student organizers are under some stress due to the unfamiliar virtual format, so please consider supporting this event.. Many thanks for any help you can offer.
