Palms Regional Tournament
Judge Registration


Thank you for volunteering to judge for the Palms Region Odyssey of the Mind Regional Tournament!

We simply cannot hold a tournament without our Officials & Judges. A regional tournament can need anywhere from 80+ Officials! In order to maintain a fair and even playing field, ALL Officials are required to attend a training session.  

Judges will be assigned to their Role and Problem prior to training to ensure all roles and problems are covered. 

Officials WILL NOT be able to see their own children's performance.

All Officials will be given a t-shirt to be worn at the tournament. 

Only registered judges can attend the judges training.

Palms Region – Official/Judge Requirements

Each team is required to supply a judge who must be registered by January 10, 2024 as part of your tournament registration. Any team provided judge who does not show to Judges Training or the Tournament could incur a $50 fine and the team risks a 25-point penalty.
