You must attend the training in order to judge at the tournament. Please contact your Team Coach to find someone who is available for training and tournament. Remember, if a team can’t provide the required Judge, the team will NOT be scored at the tournament. You may be able to attend other local regions training with prior arrangement. Please contact the Judge’s Coordinator (nwjudges@gmail.com) for specific details.

There is no limit on number of teams you can judge, however typically you can judge 10-15 teams. It all depends on what problem/division you are assigned to and how many teams have chosen that problem.

Judging roles would be communicated by the Judge’s coordinator few days before the Judge’s training.

We always make sure that Judges are not assigned to the same team they are representing, however if this does happen in rare situations, please contact the Judge’s Coordinator (nwjudges@gmail.com) immediately.
