Sweepstakes

Sweepstakes are awarded to schools receiving the highest number of points.  Points are earned for each event in which a student places 1st – 10th.  So, it is a team effort to win sweepstakes!

Events have been put into 5 tiers and each place receives a different point value.  Many individual events receive fewer points than group events requiring more “rehearsals”, coordination, difficulty, etc.

Events with an * compete at the regional level only, NOT at State.
