Each school must provide one competent judge for every five student entries or portion thereof. (For example, a team with 12 entries should provide three judges.) Please choose judges wisely. Regardless of student drops, please bring the number of judges indicated at registration.
 
AWARDS:  
• The top 3 entries in each category will receive plaques.  All other finalists will receive medals.  Team awards will be presented to the top 3 teams in the large team, medium team, and small team divisions.  The breakdown for each division will be determined when registration closes, creating as even a split amongst all teams with 5 or more entries.
