Thank you for volunteering to judge for the virtual New York Affiliate Contest 2020. With the exception of a virtual team meeting, your work will be done in our Online Judging system. You can view each entry and then complete an electronic version of the evaluation form. The form enables you to check boxes based on the judging criteria and type comments for “Strengths” and “Areas for Improvement.” The online form also has a box labeled “Personal Notes,” which is for your use only and will not be printed on the version of the form that student(s) receive. You can choose when to share your evaluations with your team and edit evaluations for each entry as often as you wish until the captain submits the team’s work to NHD.
