Can the EP representative in a remote judging session be a judge?


John Holbrook (Event Partner)

The judge guide addendum requires that an adult who is "the Event Partner or an event administrator" must be present in the meeting environment during remote judging sessions. Q&A695 clarified that the event partner can add additional event administrators who can fulfill this role during judging sessions.

Can the event partner designate the judge advisor or another judge to fulfill this role? Assume that the judge or judge advisor in question:

a. is over 18

b. is also an event partner (but not the event partner for the event in question), and therefore has a completed background check

c. has been added as an event administrator for the event in question

Assuming they met those criteria, would it be OK for the judge advisor or a judge to be the "event administrator" present in the judging session?

Answered by Competition Judging Committee

Yes. As described, this would meet all of the requirements of the Judge Guide and Judge Guide Addendum.
