There is one ACM per Challenge area who acts as the expert and trainer for their Appraisal team(s). They oversee the tournament Challenge Site.
Are you amazed by creativity? All of our Challenges require a team of volunteer appraisers to view each team’s solution, follow the scoring rubric and award as many points as the team earns. Appraisers hold a brief meeting with the team after each presentation to provide them with positive feedback and learn more about the team’s solution. Appraising at a tournament is a rewarding experience.
