Schools which enter at least 25 contestants shall be required to cover seventy-five percent (75%) of their entry with “clean” judges. One judge will cover six IE entries.  If your school needs to hire a clean judge at $20 per round in order to meet MISL bylaws, please e-mail Patrick Seick (pseick@emich.edu) as soon as possible.  We will put you in contact with some folks you can hire and pay directly if necessary.
