Exhibition Judge's Instructor Application



This is a computer program developed by Dr. Robert O. Stanton, Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at St. John's University, and an AHS Senior Exhibition Judge. It may to be used to tabulate and determine the Best in Show at AHS accredited shows. The program is intended to eliminate the tedious, time consuming and error prone process of doing this tabulation by hand. If judges' scores are entered into the program as they are received, the Best in Show should be determined within seconds of the entry of the final set of scores.

The program has been tested extensively and thoroughly for accuracy. The print out of the tabulation report from this program will be accepted by the AHS Show Chairman as a part of the official report.

The program is developed for computers using Microsoft Windows software. It will work "as is" on many computers with this operating system. However, some versions of Windows may require additional files for the program to work. If one gets a message indicating that a required file is missing, visit the Microsoft site: Click on Downloads and Updates, then Microsoft Download Center. In the Product/Technology box, find Visual Basic and click Go. Click on the Visual Basic Service Pack 5. In the next window, click Download and follow the instructions. Once the service pack is installed, the AHS Best in Show software should work. Feel free to contact Dr. Stanton if you have any questions. Note that it is essential to check the program beforehand and not wait until the day of the show.

When the software is downloaded, select the Save to file option. To run the software after it is on your computer, hit the start button and select Run. Click Browse to locate the program on your computer. Once its name, AHSBestInShowVersion2_30.exe is in the Open box, click OK to run the program. For additional help, Contact Dr. Stanton.
