What to expect at the King’s and Queen’s Arts and Sciences Championship

A question to the Kingdom A&S Minister, Master Philip White:

“What should I expect out of King’s and Queen’s Arts and Sciences Championship this weekend?”

A reply from the Minister:

Are you entering?

Then don’t panic or stress out! You should expect a lot of good fun. You’ll want to show up early, go through event registration, then go through entry registration, and finally set up display space. An hour of your day will be focused on the judging experience. You’ll have a panel that talks to you, reviews your entry, steps away to finalize your score, and then comes back to you for feedback. The rest of the time we hope you have lots of good conversations with everyone else attending. Enjoy yourself! And please, remember to stay hydrated and to eat!

Are you judging?

You’re in for a long day. A good day! With lots of good conversations! But long. We know. And we very much appreciate the work. You’ll also want to get there early. Start by going through event registration and then go through judging registration. Then you’re going to need to pace yourself as your go through the judging experience with each of the entries we assigned you. Enjoy these conversations and the partnership you build up with your panel members. And take care of each other! You also need to make sure to eat and drink throughout the day!

Are you attending?

Thank you for coming! You have an excellent opportunity for lots of learning! Please be aware that the entrants may be eagerly waiting for their scheduled judging time and may need to prioritize those conversations for about an hour. The rest of the time? Please talk to them! They are hoping to have lots of good conversations throughout the day. That means talking to you! So, ask them what inspired them or surprised them or what they thought was hard to accomplish. They will share!

For everyone:

Please thank each other. Especially our event staff and organizers!!

There are a lot of people that have come together to make this day possible. Be kind and understanding of each other. Some people may feel stress or frustration during the day. That’s okay! You can help by giving a smile or a word of encouragement to each other.

At the end of the day we’ll learn who the new King’s and Queen’s Arts and Sciences Champion are. We’ll be happy for those two people! Congratulate them!

Please also congratulate all the other artisans who entered and met many of their own goals for the day. There’s enough joy and pride to go around to everyone!

Remember… Have fun! Learn! Teach!

Your Servant to Command,
