III.4 Scoring
When the line-up is brought on stage, the judge should check to assure that the numbers on his score sheet match the competitors' numbers. After deciding the placement order, the judge should write the competitor's placement number beginning with one for the top competitor. There should be no ties. Double check to make sure that each competitor is placed, and the highest placement number is equal to the number of competitors in the class. A sample score sheet is included in the rear of this manual.
