What to Expect During the Contest

 

The competition will be held Saturday, March 4 at the Genesee Country Village & Museum  in the Banquest & Conference.  Check in for students begins at 8:15 am.  Please note that exhibits must be set up between 8:15 am and 8:45 am as judging begins after brief welcoming remarks at 9 am.  After all judging is completed doors will be open to allow the public to view entries.  

To ensure objective judging, please do not wear any clothing or accessories that indicate which school you attend.  Judging is not open to the public, including family and friends.  The public may view entries between 11:30 am and 12:45 pm.

Students will be with the judges for 10-20 minutes, which means they will have over 2 hours of free time while waiting for the awards ceremony.  Participants are encouraged to bring an activity (a book, quiet game, homework, smartphone) to fill this time.  Weather permitting, they are also to walk around the historic village.

Participants may bring their own snacks and lunch to eat while waiting.  Snacks will be available for purchase at the Museum's Flint Hill Country Store.  There are several restaurants in the neighboring town of Caledonia where lunch can be purchased.  A map is available when you check-in.  

The awards ceremony will begin at approximately 12:45 pm, and there will be a short but mandatory meeting of all first-and second-place winners, their teachers, and parents at the conclusion of the awards ceremony.
