MECHANICS and GUIDELINES for COMPETITIONS

A. MS. Q & A 2017

1. One representative/contestant from every section – from Grade 7 to Grade 11 – shall be


accepted. Only bona fide students of San Isidro NHS shall be allowed to participate in the
competition.
2. The contestant must be a professed gay male or a straight male who shall act as a gay during
the competition upon parent’s approval through a signed consent document. Failure to
submit to the organizers a copy of parent’s consent is a ground for disqualification.
3. In the absence of a willing contestant in a certain grade section, that particular grade section
can import one contestant from other class of any grade level who shall willfully represent
the grade section in question. A grade section may be left without a contestant after this
option had been exhausted.
4. By no means shall any contestant be forced or coerced to participate against his will through
any unlawful ways especially those that manifest exploitation and bribery of any form.
5. The corresponding number of each participant shall be drawn by them two days before the
event.
6. In case of protests to the results, the board of judges shall give final and irrevocable decisions.
7. Questions and problems apart from the tasks of the judges that may arise must be addressed
directly to the organizers (Sci/Math Teachers and GAD Coordinator) who shall answer or
decide on such matters in consultation with the TIC on Socio-Cultural Affairs together with
the School Head or the Alternate School Head in case of the unavailability of the former.

B. Preliminary and Final Q & A

1. There shall be three questions to be given to all contestants three days prior to the day of the
competition to help them fully prepare for the Final Q and A portion.
2. During the Final Q and A, one of the three given questions shall be chosen by draw and shall
be asked to all contestants. Contestants waiting for their turn to answer shall be wearing a
headset with loud music to ensure that they shan’t be able to hear the answers of other
contestants.
3. Each contestant shall be given 30 seconds to utter his answers after which the timer shall
signal him to stop. It is required to start the answer with the phrase “I believe”. Failure to do
so shall entail a subtraction of 1 point in the scores by each of the judges.
4. Preliminary interview questions shall be given on-the-spot based on the contestants’
biographical details.

C. Long Gown Competition

1. Only recycled, recyclable, and/or indigenous materials are allowed to be utilized as long
gown components, including with any accessories and headdress that the contestant may
wear.
2. The long gown, though made of avant-garde materials, must creatively resemble what the
name of the attire itself suggests. Furthermore, it must be a full length long gown in contrast
to tea and ballet long gown. Therefore, it is imperative that it must cover fully or at least the
vertical half portion of the feet of the contestant. A long gown lacking in length – one that
entirely exposes the feet – shall constitute a 3-point deduction from the score given by each
judge.
3. Adhesive tapes, glues, pastes, threads and other related stuffs needed to bind and secure the
materials of the gown together may be used.

They shall state the following in their introduction in order: name, age, barangay,
municipality, class represented, and favorite quotation/belief/philosophy/hugot or funny
lines. However, each contestant must refrain from stating rude, vulgar, utterly indecent and
perverted words. A violation of this shall ensue a 2-point deduction from each judge’s score.
2. The contestants must wear jeans and white shirts as their production number attire.

E. Quiz Bee

1. Five teams, each comprised of one top student preselected by the science and mathematics
teachers from each grade level, shall participate in this competition. Preselection was done
based on the students’ performance in science and mathematics. Any absent contestant shall
be replaced by any willing student of the same grade level as the absent upon approval by the
organizers.
2. The contest is a standardized quiz bee wherein choices shall be provided for every question.
3. Questions shall be selected by drawing lots as whether be coming from Science or from
Mathematics and as from what category under a particular field. Under Science, Biology,
Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science and Astronomy are included. Under Mathematics,
Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Statistics are involved.
4. There shall be three phases, namely: Elimination Round, Semi-Final Round, and Final Round.
