Judging will be based on a point system. Points will be awarded by judges each using an overall score from 1 to 10, 10 points representing maximum quality and 1 representing minimum quality. Banners will be judged on the criteria of relevance to math, creativity, neatness, and attractiveness, with greater emphasis placed on relevance to mathematics and creativity.
Due to limited display space, banners which exceed 3 feet by 4 feet by 4 inches (thick) will receive no more than 5 points from each of the judges.
All banners must be labeled with the name of the school in one of the following ways: A. The school's name may be part of the banner so that the judges can scrutinize it at a distance of 15 feet and clearly identify which school entered it, or B. The school's name may be on an artistically and/or simply designed label attached to the bottom of the banner so that the judges can read it clearly at 15 feet The label should not be larger than one square feet in area and will not be considered part of the banner.
All banners must be on a sturdy rod, must be new, and must be registered at the convention registration table upon arrival. Each chapter is responsible for retrieving its banner from the convention headquarters after the dance.
