All districts filled their spots for Area contest. There will be no fourth place teams advancing to fill the gaps.
Register online at JudgingCard.com as soon as you know that you have qualified for the Area LDE event. Student names can be changed between District and Area events and up to the day of the contest in JudgingCard. You must be registered in order to compete. Remember that qualifiers in Creed and Job Interview qualify as the participant. If that student is unable to compete at area, the fourth place team will be allowed to move up.
Your school must check in at least 30 minutes prior to your first event. Regardless of your afternoon time slot, all schools must be checked-in by 12:00 p.m
For Quiz: Jr and Sr teams from the same chapter do not have to enter at the same time, but both teams must be in the room, before any team members may leave.
Quiz will be available at 8:30. All Quizzes teams must arrive by 12:00 and begin the quiz by 2:00.
Quiz participants need to answer T/F on the top 50 of the scantron and M/C questions on the bottom 50. Participants need to bring their own FBM (brown) scantron. Team ID errors will not be fixed the day of the event. Please double check scantrons before the students compete.

Swapping Times: If you and another school agree to swap participation times, the swap must be agreed on by both advisors and both must send an email to email@example.com to indicate that the switch will happen.
