Is adult presence during a worlds team interview mandatory?


On the Remote Judging Guidelines and Processes page, the following is stated:

" The adult must have their camera on and be visible with the team at all times. The adult may not participate in the interview (other than answering the background questions listed below)"

Does this mean that we must have an adult present (we are a student-driven organization) and that we are not allowed to answer the questions meant for the adult?

Answered by Competition Judging Committee

The information you cited explicitly answers this question: Every team interviewed must have an adult visible at all times for the duration of the call. After that adult answers a short series of questions at the start of the interview, all questions must be answered by students.

Please read the Remote Judging Guidelines and Processes in its entirety for additional clarification.
