Regional Cases and Rules
Fees & Registration:
- An entry fee for teams competing in a regional competition will be collected by the Regional Director to help defray the cost of the regional competition. The fee for the regional competition may vary with the region and teams must contact the Regional Director to learn what the fee will be.
- In addition to that fee to help defray the costs of the Regional Competition, each school will be assessed a $50 fee, payable to the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, to help defray the cost of the National Competition. Some regional directors will include that $50 in the total set of fees collected from the competing regional schools and then forward that $50 to the Association. Others will ask each individual regional school to send that $50 directly to the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. Schools competing in a regional must confirm with the Regional Director whether the $50 fee is included in the regional fee or whether the school must send the $50 directly to the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. APPE Regional Director Fee Form
- A form is provided by the Regional Director for schools to send the $50 directly to the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. APPE Individual Regional Team Fee Form
- A regional school will not be eligible to compete in the regional until the $50 fee has been paid.
