Although it doesn't always happen, I think it is the intent of the
rules/ suggestions?, is that the sponsor help the entrant refine his/her
project in order to increase the entrants level of understanding of
their project as well as their mental and emotional ability to deal with
the judging process. The sponsor gets to work on their teaching and
guiding skills. If we all grow, we all win! With such questions, ask
the organizer of the competition.
