Volunteer judges needed for Joliet West Healthcare Career Fair

3/28/2018, 2:16 p.m.

This year, the Health and Medicine Academy at Joliet West High School is hosting a Healthcare Career Fair on Thursday, April 26, 2018. Currently, our Health Occupations students are compiling a career portfolio that includes information on healthcare career of their choice and information on colleges and programs that will prepare them for their desired career.

The portfolio project will culminate with students designing a poster display and preparing a short career presentation. Students will share their results at our Health Career Fair on April 26th. Consider helping with this exciting endeavor. Joliet West is looking for community members with backgrounds in business, science, engineering, medicine, etc., to be volunteer judges/mentors for our Healthcare Career Fair.

Students gain valuable skills presenting their research and discussing their career goals with others. If you can help, or if you can pass this request on to others who can help, it would be greatly appreciated! Anyone interested in being a Career Fair judge/mentor can contact coordinator, Mary Spata. If you are a parent of a student attending West you are strongly encouraged to volunteer and witness the hard work of your student and their colleagues.

There is minimum need of 12 judges for each 55-minute class periods. Each judge would be asked to evaluate several projects during each period. Judges will be needed for Period 4 (10:20 to 11:15), and Period 6 (12:20 to 1:15), Period 7 (1:20 to 2:20), and Period 8 (2:20 to 3:15).
