Judging Panel

The panel members are all BC residents. There is always at least one Technology for Living member on the panel. All other judges have a technical background and can be from a company, non-profit etc.
Judges need to be familiar with the assistive technology field and are advocates and/or users of technology and home automation. Occasionally we will have sponsor judges.
