ThinkShow! Seeking Jurors

Formerly called the Exhibition of Student Work, ThinkShow! will be on display at every Memphis City School on Thursday, March 7.  Our neighbor, Fairview MIddle School, is in need of volunteer jurors who can give feedback to students based upon their projects. You can volunteer for as long as you are able. The show will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and serving a light breakfast and lunch for jurors.

For this year’s ThinkShow!, every student at Fairview will develop and exhibit a project that demonstrates his/her best work for the school year. ThinkShow! will provide students with an opportunity to showcase their unique talents and abilities and inform their teachers, administrators and the community of their potential. Some of the artifacts last year included student-produced animated stories; a scale model of the Globe Theatre; an authentic replica of the Lorraine Motel; and multimedia games about cancer for the cure4kids.org website.

Training will be provided to all volunteers on the use of the scoring tools prior to the event.  Please extend this invitation to community members that you may know, and consider joining the ThinkShow! juror team. You may sign up to be a juror online by visiting http://www.mcsk12.net/thinkshow/application.php  or call Fairview at (901) 416-9510.
