For the student of the year, we have a committee of 3 coaches who have no student in the pool and they “rank” the applicants independent of each other and that is calculated like a final round of a speech event. If there is a tie, we look at judges preference.

As for Coach of the Year and the other awards given to adults, we usually only have 1 nominee so that person is the winner, but in the event we have multiple candidates, we do it like the student of the year with a committee of 3 that are not affiliated with the school of any nominee and were not a nominator of any candidate.

For World Schools, we do an application process after the District Tournament with the only requirement being that we only look at students who participated in the District Tournament and did not qualify to Nationals in their event at districts.
