It is now the 3rd CHALLENGE Period for CACAO Fall 2017! It will end on Sunday October 22, 2017 at 11:59 pm CDT
This is your chance to challenge other team's annotations. You may also DEFEND or suggest improvements to your own annotations IF they have been challenged. Please note, although we ENCOURAGE challenges, an excess of identical challenges that do not appear to be applicable to the annotation or well thought out will be considered spam and ignored.
