Good Day Teachers,
We are shifting away from emails and utilizing the competition website for most updates and announcements. So please check the “Important Updates” section on the homepage of the website often. The Adjudication Schedule is currently posted on the homepage so you can plan for the weekend. You can see all of your student entry codes on your registration page. Simply log in and then click on “Step 3” to see the letter number combinations assigned to your students.
We are so excited for the upcoming weekend to celebrate Shakespeare and the arts. Some important information is included here, please read it and if you have questions, email me a separate response so it doesn’t get lost in this thread.
Food will be available on campus for the entire competition weekend this year! Please encourage your students to utilize the dining opportunities in the student center. Below are the hours for the Dining Hall, Chik-Fil-A, and Papa Johns. Having them open on Saturday is a first for us, so please encourage your students to utilize these services so we can have them in future years too!
Mobile ordering is available to avoid the long lines. Please share this link with your students to download the mobile ordering app. MOBILE ORDERING APP & INSTRUCTIONS (You do not have to be an SUU student to utilize this app or eat in the dining hall

Tech Olympic time and Portfolio submission links are up on competition.bard.org - Select “Events, " “Tech” and then scroll to find the sign up links.
In most buildings where Monos and Duo/Trios are happening, we have designated a “Focus Room” for students, parents, and teachers to congregate before going to their rounds. These rooms will have an SUU volunteer in them to help answer any questions. We have also built a 10 minute passing period between Group A and Group B on the schedule. This will hopefully alleviate the super crowded hallways outside of classrooms. SUU volunteers will also be re-directing anyone waiting in hallways to please go to the Focus Room or outside. By utilizing this system we will not create fire hazards in the hallways, and be inline with University fire codes.
General etiquette and care of facilities. We are guests on SUU campus and utilize a majority of their classroom and performing spaces. Please take the time to remind students to throw trash in waste baskets, not linger in hallways, and to take care of every space they are in. Of note: if your group performs in the Sterling Church Auditorium in the student center - No food or drink is allowed in that space. There will be a table outside where you can leave any food or drink items before entering with our Guild Volunteers.
With events happening on Thursday evening, check-in/packet pickup will occur both Thursday and Friday this year.
*Please make sure to pick up your packet as it has your remind codes, student certificates, map and other important information for the weekend
Thank you for bringing your students this year, we are very excited to see you soon!

Thank you so much for all of your feedback regarding the 2022 competition. We have reviewed feedback from you, SUU, the USF Education team, and others to better learn how we can improve the competition experience. As a result of the feedback, we have made several substantive changes to the competition and revised the “Rules and Regulations” to reflect both large and small changes. Please note that the revised document is attached here. I know it is a very long document, but would plead with you to read it in its entirety.
Also attached is a letter to superintendents asking for their help with transportation. If transportation is a concern in your district, please feel free to share the attached letter with your superintendent.
We attended a meeting with the Lodging Association of Cedar City to express concerns about hotel room costs, minimum night stays, and booking policies that might preclude students from participating in the competition. Our comments were well received and we are hopeful that prices and policies will be more accommodating.
Some of the bigger changes we have made to the competition are as follows:
