Criteria for Selecting Judges

  • Judges must not have any contact with or be any relation to students who may be competing in the category they are judging.
  • ACT-SO judges are required to be degreed professionals or employed in the category that they are judging. Junior College or College Professors, professional architects, engineers, journalists, actors, painters, etc. are good candidates. Judges cannot be coaches, mentors, teachers or parents of students competing
  • The same set of judges can judge relative categories if they are qualified, i.e., drawing and painting
  • Prior to or during the competition, judges are not to instruct, advise or discuss scores with contestants relative to their performance/presentation.
