To Do List: Judging Stage

Use this To Do list for your Judging Stage:

  • Under the View Submissions dashboard, use the Eligible and Ineligible tools to validate the submissions (reference this guide or this screencast if you need help with this step)
  • If you need to reassign a judge, watch our how to manually assign/re-assign screencast here.
  • An automatic notification will go out to the judges letting them know submissions have been assigned to them. However, if you wish to send an additional message with instructions, you can use our template here.
  • 1 week into judging: send check in email to see if there are any questions
  • 1 week before judging deadline: send reminder email
  • 1 day before judging deadline: send reminder email
  • Follow up with any judges with missing scores on deadline day
  • Review scores and contact judges if you have any questions
  • Schedule post-judging discussion call to finalize winners, if needed (reference this guide if you need help with this step)
  • OPTIONAL: Send thank you notes and/or gifts to judges after winners have been finalized
