The date has been changed to reflect the postponement due to weather.
Other than the teams, the appraisers are the most important part of our regional tournament! We want them to be comfortable in their roles as ap-PRAISE-rs. Designed with ALL appraisers (new & experienced) in mind, this session will cover program structure, terminology, appraiser roles, rules of the road & how to apply them, rubrics for evaluating challenge elements, what to expect on tournament day, & how to interact with teams, team managers, & team parents. Additional sessions will address challenge-specific & role-specific appraiser topics.
By the end of the session, participants will be certified to appraise their assigned challenge.
