Judging

Judging is “Open”- Any Pack 505 adult can participate. Judging will begin at time specified above or after all cars are checked-in, whichever occurs first. Those cars not checked in before judging starts will not be in the design contest.

Judge Selection

Each judge will be able to select one car for each of the categories. A judge cannot select the same car for more than one category. A judge may vote for his/her son’s car if he/she believes it is best in a given category. Each judge can fill out only one ballot, regardless of the number of children in the Pack. Ballots will be entered via an app, requiring a smartphone or device that has a bar code scanner.

Tally

Ballots will be tallied either via electronic app. Ties will be broken by a coin flip.

Votes

If a car receives the most votes for more than one category, it will be awarded the category for which it receives the greatest margin of victory by vote count. If margin of victory by vote count Page 5 of 8 is the same, it will be awarded the category for which it receives the greatest margin of victory by percentage of total votes in the category. The car receiving the second-most votes in the category not awarded to the first car will win the category not awarded to the first car. If the car receiving the second-most votes has already won a different category, the car receiving the third-most votes will win the category. This will continue until a winner is determined.
