Each member is responsible for providing their own pencil, two pencils are recommended.
Each of the placing classes will consist of four items to be ranked 1st through 4th, based on the scenario/situation that is provided for that class. Participants will have 10 minutes to judge and mark their score card in each class.
Each senior high participant will give one set of oral reasons. Participants will have 10 minutes to prepare and 2 minutes to present their reasons. Each junior high participant will answer five questions for the questions class. Participants will have 10 minutes to answer their questions.
