Objective Test Guidelines
Number of Competitors:
The number of competitors from each chapter who can enter in events stated above will be based on local chapter membership as of the official membership dues deadline dates—January 18. This is only applicable to Objective Events starting at the SECTION level only. The maximum number of entries is as follows:
0 – 49 members - 3 competitors
50 – 74 members - 4 competitors

No materials may be brought to the testing site.
Electronic devices must be turned off and out of sight.
No calculators may be brought into the testing site; calculators will be provided.
Bring a writing instrument.
Objective Events – Number of Competitors Advance to State:
A minimum of the top six (6) places from each section competition in Objective Events will represent their section at the State Leadership Conference. The winners’ list from each section competition will indicate the number of places that are eligible. If stated events above have the following number of competitors complete a test at the section level, more than six (6) winners from that section will be able to compete at the state level as shown below:
44 – 51 competitors completing a test 7 competitors advance to state level
52 – 60 competitors completing a test 8 competitors advance to state level
61 – 67 competitors completing a test 9 competitors advance to state level
68+ competitors completing a test 10 competitors advance to state level
For every event that meets this requirement, Section Directors will determine the number of eligible competitors in affected events and send the list to SLC Competitive Events Staff.
State Leadership Conference Wild Card Entries (Objective Test Only)
Each chapter may have two (2) students compete as “wild card” entries at the state level. This will be for any Objective Event that started at the section level. (See above for list of events.) For clarification purposes, any one student may only enter one event as a “wild card.” A “wild card” event counts as one of the two active events a student may enter.
*Objective Tests Starting at the State Leadership Conference
The number of entries in the following objective test events is limited to three (3) per chapter.
