Holding a judge training session helps your event run smoothly, gives your judges a chance to ask questions, and ensures a positive experience for your students.

On the day of the event, allot at least 30 minutes for judge training and questions from judges. At this point, you should also distribute judge packets to each judge or judge team. Each packet should contain enough evaluation forms, a final ranking form, a schedule of entries for the day, judging instructions, and sample question sheet.
