Judging Resource: Team Interview Notes


Download the Printable PDF

Team Interviews are conducted in the team pit area. This allows Judges to observe teams at work and quickly move from team to team. Judges need to talk to students, not adults. Occasionally enthusiastic adults may want to answer the Judge’s questions. If this is encountered, politely remind the adult(s) that the Judges are there to interview the students. All teams at an event must have an opportunity to be interviewed at least once.

Judges may use the Team Interview Notes form to assist in team interviews. Judges will interview the teams that have been assigned to them by the Judge Advisor. Teamwork, professionalism, interview quality, and team conduct shall be considered in nominating and ranking teams for all judged awards.
