Note to Judges

  • There are many cross entries. Students must sign in to you by or before 10:00 a.m.
  • Please wait until the end time listed in the schedule for those who have signed in. (This is for untimed events. )

Guidelines for Winterfest/State Judges  (These guidelines are general guidelines. More specific guidelines/instructions are located with event critiques.)


1.Take a few quiet minutes to read the criteria for the category that you are judging. If something is unclear, please come to the tab room and ask.

2. Be sure you know a student’s name & his/her school. You may have the student write his/her name and school on the chalkboard.

3.If you are judging several levels within one room, be very certain that you ask the student his/her level – and make the critique sheet accordingly.

4. Stay until ALL performances and/or all entries have been judged. Be patient. Many students are entered in several events; they may have to reschedule their performances, so try as best you can to be patient and work with them! Do not quit early even if it may seem that no one else is coming-they may be performing in other areas!

5. It is important that the same judges, and all judges in the category view all entries. Be sure that all judges agree on the final RANKING and that all of you stay until your judging sheets have been checked off in the tab room. Fill out all sheets completely; your judging sheets are returned to the students to assist them with future language learning and event preparation.
6. Rather than disqualify a performance for any reason (time limit violation, forgotten lines, etc.), deduct points in an appropriate category, thereby lowering the ranking for that entry. Even the best English-speaking performers occasionally forget a line; it’s even more difficult in a foreign language. You may prompt if necessary; however, excessive prompting should be reflected in the score.

7. Try to rank at 60 or above if at all possible. Consider the literary/musical/artistic quality of the materials performed/presented. Try not to let yourself be biased by personal taste.

8. Rank entries through ten places. Place the names and the schools on the proper sheet. The form will be the “Awards Assembly” form.

9. Be positive and encouraging with your comments. Constructive criticism is always welcome and may be instrumental in that one student’s further study of German.

10. In all skits (and Plays) select a “Best Actress” and a “Best Actor”

11.Write the total score clearly and double check your math! When making the final listings of winners,print as clearly as possible. It is from that list that the winners are read at the awards ceremony.

12. Don’t leave campus until you turn in your results and have been cleared by the Tab Room. Thank you so much for giving up your Saturday to assist with the judging. It helps our programs tremendously for our students to see that this is important enough for adults to use a day off to help them improve! The coordinator for your area will be coming by to see that you have enough judging forms and to answer any questions.

Sincerely, Sprachfest Steering Committee
