NOTE: Students are responsible for timing themselves. Points are awarded per team- fractions are allowed in tenths of a point. Stay within the 20-30 point guide as shown. You must provide some written feedback for the students- keep it generous and helpful- NOT HURTFUL. We are in this to encourage, not discourage.

IF A TEAM IS MORE THAN 15 MINUTES LATE, WRITE "FORFEIT" ON THE BALLOT AND BRING TO TABROOM (ROOM 154). PLEASE TEXT TABROOM AT 302-824-2427 IF A STUDENT IS MISSING BEFORE THIS POINT.

MAKE SURE TO HIT "START ROUND" AT BEGINNING OF ELECTRONIC BALLOT.

MAKE SURE TO SUBMIT THE DECISION AS SOON AS THE ROUND IS DONE- YOU CAN GO BACK AND ADD COMMENTS LATER.

NO COIN FLIPS- THIS IS SET SIDE! NO OPEN CROSSFIRE! NO CONNECTIVITY- COME TO TABROOM IF YOU SUSPECT SOMEONE IS ACCESSING THE INTERNET VIA THEIR PHONE OR LAPTOP- WE WILL CHECK THEIR HISTORY.

NO LOW POINT WINS! NO TIES! NO DISCLOSURE! NO ORAL CRITIQUES! NO TALKING WITH OTHER JUDGES!

PARK YOUR PERSONAL OPINIONS/BIASES AT THE DOOR-ONLY VOTE ON MERITS OF THE TWO TEAMS, NOT ON YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT THE TOPIC! DO NOT INTERVENE IN A ROUND, ESPECIALLY DURING CROSSFIRE. IF A STUDENT IS EXCESSIVELY RUDE, DOCK THE TEAM'S SPEAKER POINTS. YOU MAY WARN THEM AT START OF ROUND ABOUT THIS.
