Only two categories of uniform competition are graded Class A and Class B. Only one team, which may consist of 4-6 members, per each Post may compete. Ten minutes is allotted for each team. Upon entry into the room, consideration is given for mode of entry and line-up. This includes military preparatory commands (dress, left-face, right-face, etc.). Major emphasis is given towards professionalism and command performance. Exclusions for competition will be denim, corduroys, and sneakers. Judges are looking for how the post handles themselves and how the uniforms are kept overall as opposed to elements and worth of the items. In other words, posts need not have expensive and fancy uniforms to compete. Well-kept and groomed uniforms are the key element of this competition. A copy of your post’s uniform standards should be provided prior to competition, if available. If not, a copy of your agency's standards should be provided with your registration if those are the standards your post follows. Explorers may be asked questions during the competition to clarify uniform questions. An understanding of departmental or Explorer policy standards would be beneficial for grading.
