ESL Podcast 658 – Judging a Contest
Adelia: When I created this writing contest, I had no idea that we would get so many entries.
Omar: Good thing you have an impartial panel of judges to help you select the winner.
Adelia: Yes, good thing. I’m really grateful to all of you for giving up your time to help.
Omar: What criteria are we using to score each of the entries?
Adelia: We’re using a 10-point scale. Each of us will read an entry and give it a score. When we’re all done, we’ll average out those scores. Hopefully, there’ll be a clear winner.
Omar: And if not?
Adelia: If there isn’t, then we’ll take the top scorers and vote on which is best. Majority rules.
Omar: Okay, but are there reasons for disqualifying an entry? For instance, what if somebody didn’t follow the entry guidelines?
Adelia: I’ve already culled the entries for the ones that don’t meet the requirements. These are all eligible.
Omar: Okay, let’s get started. We’ve got our work cut out for us.
Adelia: You’ve got that right.
