HOW Table Topics Contest  WORKS

Contestants will virtually draw “cards” offered by CM to determine speaking order. CJ will review rules with judges, ballot counters, timers.

CM announces speaking order of Contestants

Contest Protocol-Over View

All Contestants will be asked the same question  and must speak for a minimum of 1 minute and no more than 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

All Contestants except Contestant #1 are “escorted” into a separate  Zoom “break-out” room. It is like a “waiting room” away from our Contest Room, and contestants cannot hear the question.

Once the Contestant has completed, there is a minute pause for judges to complete their review. The next Contestant is called up, ..asked the same question, etc.

Once all contestants have finished, judges will then complete their tallies and work with the CJ to complete and tally votes.

If a Contestant is under or over time they will be disqualified. Hint: Get to the green light! but wrap up at red(30 seconds left)
