How will the child be judged?
Each child is judged according to the following categories: Physical Appearance, Healthiness, and Personality. Each category is rated on a 25‐point scale, from "fair" to "excellent". Please note that the scoring is based on the personal opinions of the judging panel and does not represent the opinion of the Honolulu Chinese Jaycees.
How are the scores determined?
A panel of judges, selected by the Honolulu Chinese Jaycees, will provide scores for each child based on the above categories. Then, a team of independent accountants will calculate the judging sheets for each child to determine the average score.
