I would love to partake in such a jury, but I do see the language of the essays might become an issue. I can read Dutch, English, German and a bit of French, anything else (beside some dead languages :) is off limits for me.

Heiki mentioned this in an e-mail on 9 Feb:
"Also, as not many people seem to be interested in running it,
suggestions on how to best judge the entries would be welcome. I would
prefer a jury but we may have to resort to a popular vote among the
Fellows or something."

If we have to resort to non-english entries a combination of these suggestions might be easiest, just like Alessandro mentioned but then with the option of replacing the jury with a vote. Anyway, if you decide to go with a jury, count me in!

If I had more time I would have offered to run a part of this contest in the Netherlands, but from experience I've had as a math teacher intern, I know it would take me much more time to get this up and running. Things tend to move slow and extremely bureaucratic in most Dutch schools.
