The judging requirement will be strictly enforced. The formula for regionals is 1 judge for each 5 entries or portion thereof, 1 CX judge per CX team, 1 judge per 2 LDers, and 1 judge per 2 PF teams. Judges must be available at least 75% of the rounds to be counted.

We will be using online ballots. All judges must have a tabroom account and a laptop.

Please remember to submit yourself as a judge. All coaches are required to be available to judge at Regionals. Judges are expected to judge one round past a school’s elimination, so all judges will be expected to be available for finals.

If you fulfill only the minimum judging requirements, you will judge every round. Please bring extra judges and note that they are being sent to give you a round off.

Judges may be entered on tabroom until Tuesday, March 5 at 5:00 PM..
