All judging sessions are closed.  Team members, only, as well as one to two
coaches, and one historian.  I always have my kids introduce themselves to
the judges as they walk in...they had to walk in anyway, and it makes the
judges less intimidating to the kids.

You won't need a poster for Core Values, but perhaps in project.  Core
Values judging is an activity that the kids will participate in; so I
wouldn't worry much about that one, except to make sure the kids are in
tune with each other, and know how to show each other gracious
professionalism.  This one is more about how well they work together.

Kids should know their roles in judging sessions.  Judges usually ask
questions of all the kids; however, they usually ask more build questions
of the obvious builders.  It is always OK for a team member to tell the
judges that a specific questions was not in their area of focus and refer
them to another team member.  They shouldn't answer EVERY question that
way, however.

Mission judging occurs on the table during the robot competition; it's how
scoring is done.  There is no separate judging session for that.  It is
wide open for all the world to see! Two and a half minute on the table for
three official runs (and one practice run); scoring is the best out of the
three.  Practice tables are first-come first-served.  Some tournaments have
signup sheets.  Get to the tables early to make sure you have a spot,
because you won't get long on the tables!
