Use of Electronic Devices

The FGCCFL rules for electronic devices have been updated for 2021-2022. Key points:

  1. Judges are permitted to use electronic devices for timing and electronic balloting.
  2. Students are no longer required to have their phones off. However, phones MUST be silenced and put away during rounds.
  3. Internet access (via school network or hotspot) is permitted in LD, PFD, TD, Congress, and Extemp Prep. However, communication with persons outside the round is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

Updated instructions for judges at FGCCFL Online Tournaments are now available for download. These instructions pertain to both NSDA Campus and Tabroom electronic ballots.

REMINDER: Judges must ensure that they have the necessary equipment, including camera, Chrome browser (Microsoft Edge is currently 100% compatible), and reliable internet connection.
