Each school is asked to send two members of your staff to the contest
to serve in the capacity of judges. We request at least one of the two
be a certified teacher.
On the preregistration sheet, identify the two judges and enter students as per instructions.

This year, because of budget cuts, we are requesting a small fee of
$2.00 per student to be included with the preregistration sheet.
This request will apply to any non-Shannon County School. The fee will be used to help cover the cost of the contest.
