How can I become a judge?

If you are a Southern Californian school teacher, you could be a Contest Panel Judge. Judges must obey the instructions of, Rules for Judges. This contains ancient guidelines for Diamond Winners and gemstone winners. One rule states that a judge may may read as many entries as desired as long as they are not from a judge's own school.
