Adjudication Forms

PLEASE NOTE: There has been a change in the scoring forms. Each competing group is required to fill out and bring THREE copies of the appropriate festival adjudication forms. It is easy — fill out page one and bring THREE copies of the first page. Note your soloist so he/she can be acknowledged if selected for an award. Adjudicators will already have page 2, but we included it here for your information. You will receive a Roman Numeral rating at the Festival. Complete numerical scores will be posted on our website Monday following the Festival.
