Expectations of NCTSA Judges

The NCTSA competitive events are rewarding experiences. The NCTSA State Conference, students, and teachers will rely on you as a critical part of the educational process. Here is what you can expect at the event, as well as what the program expects of you as a judge.
As a judge, you will:

    Sign up in advance on the website using this form.
    Watch the judge's orientation video prior to the event.
    Review projects and videos /or interview students (if applicable).
    Select the strongest projects to advance to the next level of competition.
    Provide feedback about each project you view.

As a judge, you are responsible to:

    Check your email early the day that you are scheduled to judge.  Use the login, links and passwords provided to judge the assigned events.  For online judging, you will have a 48-hour window from when the email is sent to judge the assigned event.  For in-person judging, you are expected to attend the event and judge during the allotted time.

    Let us know as soon as possible if your schedule changes and you are unable to judge.

    Remember the age of your audience. Some students are as young as 6th grade and may be nervous to discuss their work.  Ask questions which prompt students to provide information and be patient if they are shy or anxious.

    Pay careful attention so you can evaluate well. Students have worked for months on their projects and are looking forward this opportunity to share their work.

    Judges should avoid distractions such as personal phone calls, texts, etc. during the event.  Judges may not bring minor children that they need to supervise to the event.

    Let the NCTSA staff know right away if there are problems. We are here to help!

We appreciate your time and will do our best to make this experience rewarding for everyone involved!

Many of our judges sign-up weeks in advance, but schedules can change and unexpected judge drops cause major problems at events. We follow a schedule of communication to stay in touch and on top of judges' availability.

Judges will receive an email reminder in the first week in March.  The State Event Coordinator will send reminder emails approximately one week and again 24 hours in advance, which will provide specific log on and judging information.

If you have any questions about your assignment, or need to cancel your commitment, please contact Jerianne Taylor at stateeadvisor@nctsa.org or 336-692-4794.

If you need lodging for the event, please contact at Jerianne Taylor at stateeadvisor@nctsa.org on or before March 15, 2023.  We ask that you judge multiple events on both days and room with at least one other individual to secure lodging from North Carolina TSA.
