Parents and Teachers

Only entrants and judges are permitted in the building during the first round of judging on Sunday from 10:00 – 12:00 . In order to ensure that the participants are judged fairly, everyone else must leave the building. The public is welcome during the 2nd round of judging but must not interfere with judging that may take place from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.


Students will be required to supply their own lunches each day they are on site. Vending machines are also available within the building for snacks.


During the judging and at times during public viewing there may be periods when you will be waiting. It is a good idea to bring a book to read or something to work on during this time.
