Local F5 and Shanan Families Please Recruit Community Judges
We need your help not only in judging but in recruiting others to judge from within your community, i.e. your family, friends, fellow church members, fellow home school parents from your co-op and tutorials, coaches, teachers, neighbors, etc. Please make an attempt to recruit two community judges. Recruiting more than two is wonderful!!

A flyer that can be used for judge recruitment compliments of the Broome family.
