Official Contest Rules

The Rules set forth here represent a compilation of the original Rules and all amendments, changes and additions effective as of July 8, 2016. All previous editions of the Southwestern District Contest Rules are superseded. Should any conflict arise between these rules and BHS Contest and Judging rules, BHS Contest and Judging rules shall take precedence. The Southwestern District Representative for Contest and Judging(DRCJ) must approve exceptions to any rules found herein with the concurrence of the Southwestern District President.

NOTE: The Southwestern District official responsible for the District’s Contest and Judging program is known as of this writing (2016) as the District Representative for Contest and Judging. This title may change in the future (to, for instance, District Director of Contest and Judging). Regardless of the title, the term “DRCJ” shall refer to that official in these Contest Rules.
