ADJUDICATED AWARDS

Scoring System

All entries within the Elite, Intermediate, and Novice levels will be judged based on a point system out of 300. Diamond, Platinum, Elite Gold, Gold, Elite Silver, Silver, and Bronze will be awarded based on the overall score the dancer(s) or groups scored within their levels.
