If you're disappointed with a placement, carry yourself as a professional during and after the awards presentations. After the show ask the judges for feedback.

Everyone in the show worked hard, so don't allow poor sportsmanship to ruin the event for others. Any competitors who exhibit what OCB deems as poor sportsmanship are subject to disqualification and may be banned from future OCB events.
