Congress judging? What you should know!
If you are judging -- either as a parliamentarian or as a scorekeeper - please note:
1- Scorekeepers should write comments for each speech delivered. You can finish your session and write comments until the tournament is over, but you should let the students know what you thought about their speeches.
2 - Scorekeepers rank only the first 8 contestants in the chamber. Our software will autorank all of the remaining students as a "9."
3 - The presiding officer should be ranked among the members of the chamber.
4 - Scorekeepers should submit ranks as soon as the session ends.
1- Parliamentarians - we are following PHSSL rules! You should conduct a random draw to set up the calendar for the day.
2- Parliamentarians - we are using direct questioning after speeches.
3- Parliamentarians should rank ALL the students in the chamber!
4 -Please submit your ranks as soon as your last session ends!
ALL students and adults should keep their cameras on throughout the competition. If a student is having trouble with clarity because of short bandwidth, you may ask all to turn their cameras off while that student is speaking.
All individuals should mute their microphones if they are not speaking.
Please try to follow the tournament schedule as closely as possible!!!
