Very Important, must Read!!!!! Judges listed on Tabroom must be the judges attending as all adults who will be alone with minors will be cross-checked with the sex offenders registry. Those who do not pass this check will be escorted off campus by Campus Police. Thus we would like to have this done prior to judges arriving on campus.


Further Importance!!!! If your judges are not entered or no show, we will drop entries from your school without refund!!!
