In years past, some Area Contests did not have enough contestants to produce an exciting competition. This year, we are rejuvenating our contests by allowing more contestants to compete from the smaller areas in our district.
In 2020-2021, District 16 is allowing clubs to send two contestants to their Area Contest in Areas that have four or fewer clubs in good standing. The contest rule is as follows:
If an Area has four (4) assigned clubs or fewer in good standing, Districts have the option to allow two (2) contestants from each club to compete in the Area contest.
Therefore, the following Areas will allow (and encourage) two contestants from each of their clubs to compete in their Area Contests:
In those Divisions with four (4) assigned Areas or fewer, Districts have the option to allow the two (2) highest-placed available contestants from each Area to compete.
