Is there a live portion of the showcase?

Will I be assigned teams to evaluate? 
Yes. as in previous years, evaluators will be assigned teams to review. In making assignments, we will do our best to accommodate evaluators’ preferred area(s) of focus.

Can I check out other teams that I’ve not be assigned to?
Yes! Evaluators are encouraged to review other teams’ materials once their assigned evaluations are complete.
