Description Checklist for Judges other than Chief Judge
Category Contests  Type Information

Judges and Tiebreaking Judge


The
Judges
rank the 3 best Contestants.

- On the voting slip at the bottom of the judging form, print clearly the full names of the three best Contestants in order of preference (1st then 2nd then 3rd) without any tied positions.

- As soon as the voting slip has been completed, tear it off and hold it up so that a Counter can see that it is ready to be collected.


The Tiebreaking Judge ranks all the Contestants.

- On the voting slip at the bottom of the Tie-breaking judging form, print clearly the full names of all the Contestants in order of preference (starting with the best of all) without any tied positions.

- As soon as the voting slip has been completed, tear it off and give it to the Chief Judge. It is a good idea to ensure proximity to the Chief Judge so that this can be done discretely. (Note: the official TI Tiebreaker judging form states incorrectly that you should give the slip to a Counter.)


Guidelines for all Judges

- Ignore the actual timings of the speech. For example, even if you believe that the best speech exceeded the time limit you should still place it first.

- Rate the Contestants objectively, purely on their performance on this occasion.

- After adding up your scores, do a 'reality check' on the total scores before filling in the voting slip to ensure that you have really identified the best three Contestants.

- Sign the voting slip and print your full name clearly in the space provided.

- Any Judge or Contestant may lodge a protest with the Chief Judge or Contest Chair concerning eligibility or originality before the results are announced . In this event the Chief Judge may call a meeting of Judges to consider the protest.

- Never discuss your vote, or any judging consultations in the event of a protest, and dispose of the remaining part of the judging form in a way that no-one associated with the Contest could see it.
