A Note on Sportsmanship: The Big Ten Spectator Code of Sportsmanship should be referenced when deciding the theme and content of a display. Entries will be judged on their ability to "respect the athletic history and traditions of each opponent," and "avoid negative comments and gestures that dishonor the teams, their schools and the Big 10" as well as the other criteria of style, creativity, originality, Husker spirit, capacity to capture and incorporate the theme and organization representation.
