A&S and Bardic entry deadlines have now passed, judges are needed for these amazing entries
Experienced judges and first time judges are both welcome! We will provide a class on understanding the judging forms at the event before the competition starts. We are also happy to have student judges, who fully participate in the judging session, but their scores aren’t counted. It’s a great way to see the process without the pressure.
