Please note that the preliminary scores are not considered during the final round. In other words, the scoring during the finals is separate and independent of the scoring before the finals. The finalists will not receive a score sheet for the finals, only from the preliminaries.
The number of placements is determined by the # of entries in the division. In some divisions, it may not be necessary to hold a final round.
Each division will award placements. The number of placements is determined by a percentage of the number of entries. Each ensemble scoring an 86 or above from at least 2 of the 3 judges will receive a Division I Award.
