Discussion with Judges: Students, please be prepared to answer judges’ questions about the content and development of your entry and to explain the design, research, and creation of your entry. Judges need to know that your entry is the result of your own work. However, you may not give a formal, prepared introduction, narration, or conclusion. Let the judges’ questions guide the interview. Ultimately, your entry should be able to stand on its own without any additional comments from you.

- Students should bring a copy of their annotated bibliography and any materials specific to their category to the contest.

- If your project is a documentary, please post it on YouTube or another clous-based service in case your flash drive does not work.
