Official Judging Guidelines

The judging will be conducted by a panel of judges in a fair and impartial manner in accordance with the following:
1.    The judges will utilize a scoring system designed to place high priority on quality.
2.    Speed itself is not scored, but volume of work completed is a factor.
3.    Each judge will individually inspect each panel and assign scores to each category that applies to that heat.
4.    The total scores for each contestant will be averaged to determine the heat winners.
5.    In most matches, there will be a variance both in the quality and volume of work performed.
6.    In those cases, the combination of our unique and in-depth scoring system and independent scoring and score averaging by the panel of judges will ensure fair and impartial results.
7.    If all competitors in a match complete all of the work in the assigned time, the designated number of winners with the best quality will advance to the next round.
8.    If by chance any competitors tie, the appointed Head Judge will have the casting vote.
The decisions of the judges are final.
