I know that this sounds like a good common sense approach, but it is a bad idea statistically speaking. I call this "inverse statistical regression". If you understand statistical regression, you can explain how I am wrong AND I'll read your response. It may also introduce bbq to the criterion problem.

The issue would be compounded if the judges knew where their average scores fell.

Some how I bet no one will heed this warning. It something has face validity, to hell with construct validity.
