The awards are determined by of the “Discipline Contest Coordinator (DCC)” for that discipline and presented at the annual meeting.

9.    Each contestant’s result for any particular contest will be normalized to 100 points against all the other competitors in that particular contest.

10.Each contestant’s normalized score will then have an additional number of points added according to the number of contestants he/she bested.

a.    Example: If a contest had 20 contestants and the contestant being scored bested 15 of those contestants (came in 4th) an additional 15 points would be added to the normalized score.
