If you were present at the six meetings, you will understand the difficult decision the Board Members have to make. The Board takes this responsibility very seriously. Many members have asked how we rate the students. The categories are: Appearance (neat,etc), Poise, Content, and Structure. The board does not discuss or compare their votes.

The ballots (folded) are given to Dan Yadesky. He is responsible for entering each ballot by Board Member into the computer. After the April meeting results, Dan clicks the total key and voilà we have six winners!

Special thank you to Emilia Peiffer and the senior class teachers. They have done a great job by bringing students that amaze us!
