However...The rules (at least my antiquated copy) don't say anything about the
qualifications of a "safety pilot."  So if your student pilot is looking for a
competition "ride," he could act as safety pilot for a basic or sportsman
competitor (hopefully one who doesn't need a safety pilot).

Ok Brian, I'm ready for it.

Yes, see Rule 2.1 of the IAC Rule Book.  "Each competitor must possess at 
least a Recreational Pilot certificate with rating appropriate to the class 
of aircraft to be flown (power or glider) and a current medical certificate 
to be registered in the contest.  These certificates must be shown to the 
contest officials as required.  See 4.2.2 (i) for medical requirements for 
glider pilots."

Student pilots do not qualify for entering a contest.  Suggest encouraging 
the student pilot to come to the contest, if possible as there is plenty of 
fun to be had, but I'd also encourage them to focus available time and 
monetary resources on finishing their Recreational or Private Pilot 
certificate ASAP so they can join in the airborne fun, too!
