A judge can place multiple or no entries at each accolade level in both the Student and Professional categories. Everything is under their discretion.

You do not double-up on points. For example, if you win 25 points for Gold you do not also get an extra 5 points for participation, even if you have entered two entries. If, however, you have more than one entry awarded in a given month, then the points for each awarded entry will be added to your total.

People can be removed from your team, but no one can be added. If someone gets added to your team, your tally begins again.
