GREAT idea!!! This is the first application (of the 100+ that I've filled out) that actually has a place for either comments, or in this case the ability for the judge to provide information on his/her qualifications and interest!

I also like that you tell the judges up front about "NO COOLERS". That way there is NO question or mis-understanding on the day of the event.
I also like that you provide a suspense date for notification of the judges selected that is 5-weeks before the event! That gives judges notice of when to expect to hear something - MANY of the contests I apply for do NOT notify the confirmed judges more than a week or two in advance, making it difficult to make travel arrangements (without expecting higher costs).

THANK YOU for your explanation!
