What about offering some examples of completed forms. They wouldn't have
to come from just your chapter. Maybe national could ask all of the
competition chairs to submit what they consider to be well judged examples
and then distribute them to the chapters. I think the binder that
contains the rules and procedures needs to be expanded. In fact a couple
of us in my office have volunteered to work on this for our chapter.
