Student participants are expected to compete in tournament events with an honest effort to follow the rules and the spirit of the competition. The goal of the competition is to give one’s best effort while displaying honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. Students, coaches, parents and guests are expected to display courtesy and respect toward Olympiad officials, other teams and guests of the Olympiad. Failure to show honesty and/or courtesy by a participant, coach, parent or guest of the team may result in the disqualification of the team from the event, the entire tournament or future tournaments.
