South Metro Teams Only: Instant Challenge Day is the perfect opportunity for your team to receive hands on experience in front of appraisers in a noncompetitive setting. Each team will rotate through 4 different types of challenges, be given feedback on their solution, teamwork and hints to make tournament day Instant Challenge less stressful. The challenges are tournament level appropriate.
Appraisers: Each team is required to provide one volunteer appraiser, this can be a parent, teacher, grandparent or…. if you’d like to see what Instant Challenge is all about have a parent escort your team and you be the appraiser. This person needs to commit to appraising until approximately 1:00 pm on Instant Challenge Day. There will be a training in the morning before teams arrive so no need to worry if your volunteer isn’t familiar with Instant Challenge. We’ll training them and make sure they are placed with an experience person. Your team will not be considered registered without a volunteer. Instant Challenge Day can’t happen without volunteers!
