Reminder for State Awards Presentations:
Managers are asked to remind those in the tab room that final results should not be disclosed before the awards ceremony. Here are some points to share with those doing the tabulating:
The awards ceremony is part of the thrill of a state event, and the celebratory impact of that ceremony is diminished if the students already know the results.
Citizenship, respect and good sporting behavior are expectations that we have for our students, as well as for coaches and parents. Informally disclosing the results can lead to unsportsmanlike behaviors from students and adults alike, depending on their opinion of the results. A more formalized announcement of the results during the awards ceremony demonstrates the significance of these state events as well as the professional regard with which they are viewed.
Discretion concerning the final results will ensure that we avoid any confrontations between parents/coaches/students and the judges. Our judges are part of a volunteer community pool, and to ensure that they are not challenged, confronted or publicly critiqued students and parents should not be told the results before the formal ceremony.
