POIs will be allowed. When the speaker wishes to POI, they will unmute themselves and ask the question.
All cameras must always be on.
There won’t be prep time, but members can discuss with each other before the round officially begins. All teams can use any printed or written plans.
To discuss with teammates during the round, use a group chat platform of your choice such as hangouts.
No one is allowed to screenshot or record any debates - if we find you doing so, you will be disqualified (No exceptions!)
Please leave your video call as soon as the round is over and feedback is given.
- Spectators are only allowed if all students are fine with it. Please bring it up in the beginning of the round if you are not comfortable with a spectator present.
- Remember that you are not allowed to search up information during the round. You can only use pre-prepped material (either on a doc or on paper). Anyone found violating this rule will be disqualified.
