All teachers entering students must assist during the day of the contest or pay a non-volunteer fee. Any teacher who sends more than fifteen students each must commit himself or herself to be at the contest the whole day, or send a responsible substitute, or pay a higher non-volunteer fee. A last minute cancellation without a substitute will result in those students being disqualified.
