There has been some confusion over the role of the designated team ‘alternate’ and the degree of participation allowed, so the Challenge organizers feel the need to clarify for all teams.
Per the rules and guidelines, the person registered as an alternate should not participate in Challenge (including brainstorming, developing and writing the submission, etc.), UNLESS one of the core team members can no longer participate for some reason. If this is the case, we need to be notified of the change immediately. The alternate’s name should not be on any submissions or presentations unless he or she has become a core team member and we have been notified.
We understand that due to the confusion, alternates may have participated up until this point in the Challenge. Going forward, please abide by the language above, and let us know
if you have any questions.
