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

Judge and Tiebreaking Judge

Judge

Your job is to rank the best three Contestants.
- On the voting slip at the bottom of the judging form, you print clearly the full names of the three best Contestants in order - starting with the best of all - without any tied positions.
- As soon as you have completed the voting slip, tear it off and hold it up so that a Counter can see that it is ready to be collected.
- You submit only the voting slip to the Counter, not the whole form.


Tiebreaking Judge

Your job is to rank all the Contestants.
- On the voting slip at the bottom of the Tie-breaking judging form, you print clearly the full names of all the Contestants in order - starting with the best of all - without any tied positions.
- As soon as you have completed the voting slip, tear it off and give it to the Chief Judge. It is a good idea to ensure you are sitting near the Chief Judge so that this can be done discretely. (Note: the official TI Tiebreaker judging form incorrectly states that you should give the slip to a Counter.)
- You submit only the voting slip to the Chief Judge, not the whole form.
- If you wish you could put your slip in a sealed envelope and ask for it to be returned to you discretely in the event there is no tiebreak.


Guidelines for all judges

Don’t Panic!
- You may use the criteria on the judging form; it is recommended but not obligatory.
- Even if you do score according to these criteria you may ignore your own scoring.
- Ignore the actual timings of the speech. For example, even if you have reason to believe that the speech you consider the best exceeded the time limit - you should still place it first.
- You must avoid bias and rate the Contestants only according to their performance at the Contest.
- Sign the voting slip and print your full name clearly in the space provided.
- Never discuss your vote, or any judging consultations in the event of an objection, and dispose of the remaining part of the judging form in a way that no-one will see it.

JUDGE'S CODE OF ETHICS

I. Judges will consciously avoid bias of any kind in selecting first, second, and third place contestants. They will not consider any contestant's Club, Area, Division, or District affiliation. Nor will they consider any contestant's age, sex, race, creed, national origin, profession, or political beliefs. They will demonstrate the utmost objectivity.

2. Judges will not time the speeches and will not consider the possibility of under time or overtime when judging a contestant's speech.

3. Judges will support by word and deed the contest rules and judging standards, refraining from public criticism of the contest and revealing scores and ranking only in accordance with official policy.
