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)
