Judging 
Every effort is made to evaluate tasks impartially and separately using a large pool of judges. All team entries are identified only with an assigned team number. Judges do not know from which high schools entries came from. A common "task scoring rubric" is used by all judges. A highly qualified group of judges evaluates every task of the competition, separately. The averaged score of separate evaluations from various judges determines task scores. A perfect score for all of the activities on the day of the competition, would be     Internet Search (40 pts)  + 3 Selected Tasks  (20 pts each) =  100 possible total points  (total of 4 file submissions)

Clear and complete sentences, with correct grammar and spelling, can make a difference. In the event of a tie, clear written communication (spelling, grammar, completeness, and clarity) will settle ties. Your team should complete the competition well before the 11:59 AM deadline on the day of the competition. There is a very stiff penalty of 1 deducted point per minute for late team submission, based on the time stamp of the last file to be submitted. Any incomplete team submission that is more than 30 minutes late will NOT be judged. So, it is very important to submit ALL of the 4 files on time.

"Scoring Rubric"

Judges use this "scoring rubric" to judge each of the 3 tasks; each task is worth 20 pts.

Appeals
The volunteer organizers of this event reserve the right to make a final decision regarding any appeal regarding an unforeseen problem for the sake of closure, expediency, and economy. This is clearly described on the registration application.
