7:45 AM Checkin, 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM Training

Judges Training is mandatory for all Odyssey of the Mind judges, whether new or experienced. The training is organized by problem and by judging role and is specific to this year’s problems. Every team is required to provide a judge, and that judge must attend the full training event and the full day of the tournament for the team to receive a score for their performance.

Judges may not be actively coaching a team this year. team parents who chose to judge will be assigned to judge a problem other than the one their child is competing in and will not be able to watch their child’s performance in person.

There is no cost to attend Judges Training. Breakfast snacks, coffee, and tea will be provided.
