ALL students will be assigned to an event right from the beginning BEFORE October 21.  There are no ‘second chance’ events..  If a student competed in AAM at Regionals and did NOT place, then that student cannot compete at Provincials.  The ONLY event open is Leadership.

…. essentially EVERYONE in your chapter will be assigned to an event by October 21…. REGARDLESS of when they compete…November or February.​  Some of the Written Events do NOT have to qualify at Regionals and automatically are eligible to compete at Provincials but they must CHOOSE their event and sign up for it in October.

When registering for your events, the students are slotted into events and need to be balanced. 15 of the 18 combined Individual and Principle Events and 5 of the 7 Team Oral Events must be populated with the student names before the system will allow you to continue the next flight.  The Writtens Events are a maximum of two entries per event and do NOT have to be balanced.

  • Overall scores were used to rank the students
  • Qualifiers will vary depending on event and number of students per event
  • Regardless of the actual average in the event, only the Top X number of kids move on. (i.e. at the York Regional, the ACT lowest qualifying score was 138 while the lowest qualifying score in Toronto is 168
