Competitive Events

Please note the following with respect to competitive events:

  • Be sure you fully understand your event guidelines! Some events are a written test AND presentation, some oral events require advanced preparation while some are on the spot, and some events require written documents to be submitted prior to SLC (i.e. a resume).

    Iowa PBL follows National guidelines for event testing at SLC, however we do not have a preliminary round. Please thoroughly read all guidelines!

  • All events will mimic National guidelines with one exception – we will not have a preliminary round for any events. The guidelines for final round will be followed. All other guidelines are the same. This includes submitting materials prior to conference.
  • All supplementary materials (resumes, website addresses, etc) must be sent in advance if the guidelines indicate. These items will be pre-judged before SLC. If you do not send in these documents ahead of time, you will be docked points. Submission deadlines are below.
  • According to the National guidelines, if you have competed in an event at an NLC in past years, you are not allowed to compete in that event again. While we are not able to fully monitor this, we ask that you not repeat events. Should we discover a student participating in a repeated event, they will be disqualified.
  • When enrolling for events, please be sure you are eligible. In some instances, students may not do an event if they are in their junior or senior year or if they have taken a specific number of classes.
